More than 200 people attended a public consultation hosted by the Hadley Property Group, after the developer announced plans to build 450 homes near St James Street Station in Walthamstow.
The proposed scheme is the latest announcement for the site, located on an underused car park, where plans to build a Morrisions supermarket and 245 homes fell through earlier in 2015, after the retailer pulled out. Local residents and stakeholders were able to view the latest proposals in Walthamstow at the end of November.
The developer wants to demolish part of the industrial estate on the site, which includes the Alpha Business Centre, to pave the way for new homes, landscaped public squares and the potential for further commercial development.
Danielle Torpey, a senior development manager at Hadley Property Group, said: “We believe there is a fantastic opportunity at South Grove to revitalise this part of the town centre with new homes for Londoners, including affordable housing, as well as new landscaped public spaces in a car-free and cycle-friendly development."
The Hadley Property Group said it will soon release the results of the first round of public consultation. A planning application to Waltham Forest Council is likely to follow.
