Countryside is working alongside local residents and stakeholders on the detailed design proposals which will be submitted for approval in Spring 2015 with building works starting later in the year. The scheme, which has been designed by Stitch Architects, includes 150 affordable homes and flexible retail space around a new Plaza and public square.
Richard Cherry, Chief Executive of Countryside’s Partnerships division, said: “We are delighted to be the development partner for Marlowe Road and look forward to working with Waltham Forest Council and residents to deliver much needed new housing for the local area. Our focus will be on bringing back traditional tree-lined streets that link well with the surrounding area, with active frontages providing well defined spaces for the neighbourhood to enjoy.”
A review by the Council in 2010 identified the 1960s estate, which has suffered from crime and deprivation, as a priority for investment. It has poor pedestrian walkways and linkages, while gardens and store sheds are underused.
