He commented that ENTP is helpful for sharing knowledge and good practices, influencing EU policy and joining EU projects. He underlined our role in Harlow development and the benefits to his town. “Because we are all new towns, we are fairly unique about our design, spatial strategy and environment… So let’s all come together and see what works best so we could get the best for our cities”, continued Mr. Durcan.
