This mixed-use development revitalising The Score Centre in Leyton combines 750 new homes with a vibrant new gathering place surrounded by community facilities. The facilities include a pre-school nursery, café, community halls and a new health hub with 20 GP rooms. The much-needed new housing includes 50% affordable homes.

The development will provide high-quality landscaping and new green spaces, with new homes arranged around shared garden courtyards with play space for all ages and productive gardens. The proposals also include new and improved sports and leisure facilities and a new district heating network with capacity for 2,250 new homes.

Coronation Square is designed to be contextual yet distinctive, using pink London brick and pre-cast concrete to reflect the character of Leyton’s civic buildings. A striking new building, Market Hall, references a medieval moot hall and activates the new square with retail and commercial uses.

Coronation Square was the largest planning application in Waltham Forest’s history, has received unanimous planning consent by virtual planning committee in April 2020. The whole project is due to be completed by 2027.

This is the largest home building scheme in the Council’s current programme, and we are pleased that it now has conditional planning permission and is able to move forward. As well as providing much needed new homes, including affordable ones, the scheme also boosts the health care and child care facilities in Leyton as well as providing many other benefits for the wider community, including local jobs for local people both during and after the construction work.”
Cllr Simon Miller, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth and Housing Delivery, Waltham Forest Council
We are thrilled that this major application has been approved and would like to thank councillors for taking the time to fully consider the many benefits that the development will bring to the Borough of Waltham Forest.

We have been working closely with the team at Waltham Forest Council in order to develop proposals that truly meet the needs of the entire community, bringing together a mix of high-quality housing to suit a wide range of buyers and vital new facilities that will cater to all ages.

We are also pleased to confirm that the development will create approximately 200 long-term full-time jobs across a range of sectors, as well as construction jobs for the area including 38 training placements.

It was particularly important that we aligned our vision for the Coronation Square development with the Council and neighbourhood objectives, and we would like to thank all those who gave feedback on the early proposals, including local residents and key community stakeholders. We believe this development will provide a positive legacy for the Borough and we will continue to engage with local people as work progresses.”
