Planning application submitted for Walthamstow dog track development
London and Quadrant has submitted a planning application for a controversial development on the site of a former iconic dog track.
The 66,000-home association on Friday delivered an application to Waltham Forest Council to build 301 homes on the Walthamstow Stadium site in east London.
L&Q had been accused by campaigners of landbanking as it had been nearly three years since it purchased the site after the stadium closed in 2008.
The plans consist of 301 homes, a children’s nursery, allotments and green spaces.
Mike Johnson, development director at L&Q, said: ‘We are very pleased to have delivered our application and look forward to continuing our community consultation as the application process takes place.
‘As a result of this ongoing consultation we have revised our plans to incorporate some of the feedback we have received and we are committed to continuing this work.’
London & Quadrant had previously turned down a bid to buy the site from millionaire Bob Morton, who wants to re-introduce greyhound racing.
