The majority of the application information appeared on the WF website on 02 February, although (at our request) the Design and Access Statement was added today, 09 February.
Like others we find the WF website very inaccessible, so for this scheme (since it is significant and apparently not very well publicised) we have downloaded the information for access here. Please see below.
We believe the official closing date for comments is 29th February. We have now been advised that due to delays in publicising the application the consultation deadline has been delayed until 14 March 2016. (There is a statutory requirement for an official notice to be displayed in a local newspaper (here, Waltham Forest News) and a 21 day consultation period following this.)
Important local planning policy that is relevant is the Northern Olympic Fringe Area Action Plan (although this has not been adopted by the council so legal weight is questionable), LB Waltham Forest’s Design Charter and Urban Design SPD.
