Sixty Bricks now also proposes “site-wide” changes to give pedestrians “priority over vehicles”, including turning three existing parking courts into “shared vehicle [and] pedestrian space”.
While the new flats will not have attached parking, Waltham Forest Council is also consulting separately on plans to introduce a parking permit scheme for residents of the existing estate buildings.

The consultation proposals read: “The new homes will be a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments… All homes will feature private gardens or balconies and also have access to landscaped communal gardens and play areas.
“The landscape proposals will provide a new multi-use games area, public play park, a ‘play way’ and as well as improved access and connectivity around the site.”
Just over 40 of the new flats will be offered at “affordable rates”, although it is unclear whether they will still be offered first to local residents, as was promised back in 2020.
If the application is agreed, work will start in spring next year and is expected to take two and a half years.
