Harlow council believe Pets’ Corner is due a ‘face lift’ to restore its beauty, they have now invested additional funds for the works. 

Pets’ Corner is a council owned farm located in Harlow Town Park and opened in 1966. The improvement works began there last week. 

The farm is set to recieve works including new cladding, larger stable windows to improve viewing accessibility alongside painting and new doors, cladding and a suspended ceiling at the aquarium. 

Pets’ Corner remains open while these works are being carried out, however there may be some restrictions to viewing areas on certain days when more intrusive work, such as cutting the bricks ready for the new windows, is being carried out. 

Harlow council have commissioned a property maintenance company HTS (Property and Environment) to deliver the needed works.

 Commenting on the works, Councillor Joel Charles, Deputy Leader of Harlow Council, said: “The council is constantly looking at ways to improve the facilities at Pets’ Corner. These works will provide a much-needed facelift to some of the front-facing structures that form a key part of the surrounding enclosure. HTS has been commissioned to lead on the facelift because its project team will ensure the work is delivered to a high standard. 

 “Making sure Pets’ Corner is accessible to all and visits from residents are as enjoyable as possible is one of my priorities. This work programme shows that the council is serious about investing in its community facilities for the benefit of residents and is focused on improving the environment for the animals whose welfare must always come first.”
