At a heated planning meeting, all seven councillors on Waltham Forest’s planning committee united to reject the UCKG’s latest plans for a church/cinema hybrid at the EMD. More in the Waltham Forest Guardian.
The UCKG will now Appeal this decision along with the previous plans rejected last year. The provisional date for this Appeal hearing is November, when the national government’s planning inspectorate will decide whether to overrule Waltham Forest Council’s decisions.
We’ll keep you posted on how you can help ensure the planning inspectorate understands the opposition to UCKG’s plans and potential damage they will cause regeneration hopes for Walthamstow.
In the meantime, a very big THANK YOU to all supporters!
