The existing planning consent

We previously secured planning consent from Waltham Forest Council in December 2020.

The previously consented proposals included:

  • 573 new homes, including 158 affordable homes
  • A 50-place nursery for local children
  • A new community square with play space at the pedestrian entrance on Clementina Road
  • More than 150 new trees
  • Over 40% of the development would be open space
  • Over 1,000 cycle parking spaces to encourage sustainable modes of travel

Should you require further information, you can view the details of our previously approved planning application from July 2021 here.

Our New Proposals

The viability of the consented scheme has been affected by very high inflation, particularly impacting the costs of materials and labour.

Since 2020 there have been changes in regulations, in particular fire regulations requiring second staircases in taller buildings.

Our updated plans include:

  • 643 new homes, of which 166 homes are affordable (35% by habitable room)
  • Over 11,347 sqm of new public open spaces, including the creation of access into Leyton Jubilee Park opening up the site to the wider community
  • Buildings between 4 – 21 storeys in height, with the additional height located away from the Clementina Estate
  • A new proposed NHS Health Centre
  • A 50-place children’s nursery
  • Additional play space, a new public art trail, and a proposed community space
  • Increased funds for Waltham Forest Council to spend on local infrastructure and improvements
