Waltham Forest Council’s Planning Committee approved an application for 91 new homes on Hoe Street in Walthamstow Town Centre on Tuesday 7 May 2019.
The redevelopment of the Juniper House site includes building a 53-place pre-school nursery for local people with its own play-area at the back of the site, new flexible commercial space and a pocket park at the front along Hoe Street.
Cllr Simon Miller, Member for Economic Growth and High Streets, commented: “The planning approval of 91 new homes at Juniper House is part of our wider vision to ensure we deliver much needed housing for our local people. We are committed to delivering 1,800 new homes a year over the next ten years. Juniper House is in the middle of the town centre and not only are new homes prioritised for local people welcomed, but also the provision of a new nursery, something our residents have told us they want.”
With £2.48m grant support through the Greater London Authority’s (GLA) Building Council Homes for London Programme the site will achieve 50% affordable (by the GLA’s habitable room definition). The plans will now go to the GLA for consideration and final approval is subject to negotiating satisfactory Section 106 conditions.
Works will start on site in summer 2019 and be completed in early 2021.
