Pollard Thomas Edwards working on behalf of Hadley Property Group granted planning permission for 473 new homes on South Grove site in Walthamstow Town Centre. The plans will also include 2,786 square metres of new public realm and a new commercial space, which it is hoped will become a cycle café.
Mark Lebihan, Chief Operating Officer at Hadley Property Group said “We are delighted that the London Borough of Waltham Forest has decided to share our ambition to revitalise this part of Walthamstow town centre. These 473 homes, including 97 affordable homes, will be an attractive addition to the St James Street area and will be complemented by new public spaces for everyone to enjoy.”
The development will be car-free, two car club spaces will be provided alongside 788 secure cycle parking spaces. The scheme will also connect to new mini-holland cycle routes being implemented by Waltham Forest Council.
Construction is due to start in early 2017 and is expected to be completed in 2019.
