This Planning Application proposes four 7-10 storey high-rise high density residential tower blocks on the River Lee Navigation opposite North Millfields, in the Borough of Waltham Forest. It will loom over Walthamstow Marshes and set a prescedent for the future destruction of the low rise Lea Valley views.
Local Councillors representing Leabridge Ward in Hackney have asked for this Application (to WF) to be discussed at the Planning Sub-Committee Meeting at 6.30pm on Wednesday 3rd February.
Hackney’s Planning Officers are recommending the Borough should put in an objection to Waltham Forest. We agree!
Please come to the meeting to show the high degree of public interest in this matter!
The organisers also encourage people to bring posters to the Town Hall steps before the meeting, from 6.00pm, bearing ‘neutral’ green slogans (such as “Keep our Open Spaces Open,” “Save our Marshes”, “No to High-Rise Tower Blocks in the Lea Valley,” “Keep our Green Space Green” etc) in support of the Planning Officers’ recommendation to object.
