SAVE OUR GREEN SPACE, SAY NO TO OVER DEVELOPMENT
Petition relating to the proposed New Road Development. Larkswood Leisure Centre, nursery and land to the rear of the Leisure Centre.
Labour has launched an attack on the heart of Larkswood’s green space and retail area, putting established trees and wildlife at risk. Sign our petition and helps us save your green space and say NO to overdevelopment.
The Council is proposing to build over 300 homes on the New Road Leisure Centre site which would impact on an already congested area. Local residents in the area told us that they would like to see regeneration in South Chingford, but they did not want big blocks of flats and that any new developments must be in keeping with the surrounding area. Excessive development in this area will have a detrimental impact on our open spaces and the wildlife that inhabits our green space. Local residents told us that they wanted to protect the area’s green and open spaces and we're asking the Council to listen, join the campaign!
We the undersigned call upon the Council to
1) Not build on the green open space behind/adjacent to the Leisure Centre (Site A).
2) On the Leisure Centre site, the height of any new building should not exceed the height of existing buildings.
3) Allocate CIL https://www.walthamforest.gov.uk/content/NCIL to Larkswood to deal with Infrastructure.
4) Retain all existing facilities currently available on the Leisure Park site.
