Walthamstow Town Centre - Summer 2020

posted 9 Mar 2020, 13:05 by Waltham Forest Civic Society
Because TfL need to urgently create a second entrance and exit to Walthamstow Central Capital & Regional have been persuaded to drop their previous plans to redevelop the Town Centre. In October 2019 they consulted on moving the tower blocks away from the Victoria Line and further down Selborne Road.

To get the community onside, it was announced in December 2019, that the avenue of lime trees would be retained. But what is not yet known is what the new planning application will contain. In October they increased the height of the tower blocks to 31 storeys. Is it significant that Ealing has granted planning permission for a 55 storey block?
We will have to wait until the summer as C&R refuse to engage with the community.
