New Planning Applications and Conservation

A number of planning applications which, in our view, contravene the conservation status of Upper Leytonstone have been observed recently.  Forest Residents Association remains determined and committed to protecting the special character of the area. There is a shortage of family sized housing in the borough and Leytonstone has a good stock of these houses. FORA would like to see Waltham Forest Council and Historic England uphold the conservation  order by:-

  • preventing housing being turned over to short term and or multiple occupancy
  • ensuring that listed properties are suitably maintained and protected
  • upholding the conservation order
  • supporting our community by encouraging longer term family occupancy in family housing

See here for a previous FORA post on planning
