Come and see new Health Centre and housing proposals for South Grove

South Grove Site C red line plan

Across Waltham Forest, the Council is working to deliver more affordable homes for local people, including Council homes for rent and for shared ownership, where local residents get the first option to buy so they can get a foot on the housing ladder. Our aim is to achieve 50 per cent affordable housing when taking account of all housing schemes across the borough.

An important part of these developments is delivering improved transport services, new health hubs, schools and community facilities alongside new shops and work spaces to provide local jobs.

The Council has been set a target of 18,000 new homes being built in the borough over the next 10 years and our aim is to include as many affordable homes within that figure as possible.

One of the sites identified is Site C in South Grove, Walthamstow, which has previously been occupied by four industrial units.

  • 83 new homes including for affordable rent and shared ownership
  • a 1,500 sqm health care facility with related car parking spaces
  • four wheelchair accessible car parking spaces
  • landscaping and amenity space
  • secure cycle parking
  • solar panels will be installed

A drop in engagement event is taking place on Wednesday 14 August, 4.30 to 7.30pm at The Mill, 7-11 Coppermill Lane, Walthamstow, E17 7HA.

Council officers will be available to discuss the proposals and answer questions.

The Council has prepared a Draft St James' Quarter Public Realm Design Guide to provide guidance for the enhancement of public areas in the St James Quarter area of Walthamstow Town Centre.

It aims to improve the key north-south and east-west pedestrian and cycle links through the area and set out good design principles for public areas and links between sites.
