Council support for Community-led Housing

Waltham Forest Council recognises the role individuals and community groups can play in meeting their housing needs.

The Council has a Community-led Housing policy effective from April 2020 that sets out what qualifies as Community-led Housing (CLH) and how the Council will support individuals and groups looking to meet their housing needs through community-led housing projects.

Claude Road Community Led Housing site 2020

Claude Road, Leytonstone

This piece of land adjacent to 100 Claude Road is currently used informally for car parking.

It is 442 square metres in size and is within easy walking distance of Leyton Midland Overground Station and local bus stops.

Bidders for the site should deliver affordable housing.

Kings Road Community Led Housing site 2020

Kings Road, Leytonstone

This mid-terrace site next to 73 Kings Road, Leytonstone, has been ear-marked for affordable housing.

It is a former garage site and the garages were demolished some years ago.

St John's Ambulance (SJA) has a lease on part of the site for access to the rear of its 66 Queens Road operational hub. That access will remain should the Kings Road site come forward for housing.

As the Kings Road site is currently underused, the Council has granted SJA temporary use of part of the Kings Road site for parking – this will be reviewed should development proposals come forward.

It is a short walk to Leytonstone Underground station and is well-served by local buses.
