Thanks to Adrian Stannard of the WALTHAM FOREST CIVIC SOCIETY for this latest planning update.

At last night's Planning Comittee there were many surprises. Firstly, the downstairs public gallery was full so I had to sit in the upstairs one [which I have not done for many years] - an indication of the publicwanting to engage in the political process - good news. Further good news was that the first two items, 154 - 160 Kings HeadHill and 454-458 Larkshall Road, both very similar and were rejected. Earlier schemes had been rejected but the developers, both housing associations supported by our taxes, have appealed.

The existing 1920s estate is only 2 storeys but L&Q, using the same footprint, want to build a 6 storey development with no care about the street scene. Wewill be objecting.
