Leicester Road & Nutter Lane development


You know that leafy corner of Leicester Road at the bottom of The Avenue where it meets the Nutter Playing fields where Mrs Lironi’s house, Chepstow once was?  Well, look at Plans no. 3398/08 (online or in the library) and see the three blocks of flats and the houses likely to replace it forever.

It’s a scheme which appears to overshadow the Nutter Lane Arts and Crafts cottages and which faces The Avenue with an area for car-parking. It seems a sorry end for a grove where once an attractive landmark building stood and we still worry about losing some of the trees.

Leicester-developmentThe Wanstead Society contends that the scheme does not fit the setting or accord with the surrounds.

If you have objections, write them to Mrs. Anna van Overbeke, Planning Dept., P.O.BOX 2, Town Hall, Ilford, IG1 1DD.
