Homes Plan Gets The Go-Ahead

APPROVAL for the construction of 83 homes on the old Nightingale School site in Wanstead has been given by Redbridge Council.
The developement , which was thrown out by the council’s planning commitee on one previous occasion , finally won approval last Wednesday night , despite some doubts by councillors.
The estate will consist of 75 two and three - bedroomed houses and eight two bedroomed flats together with 117 car parking spaces.
Some councillors objected saying the development was too dense and out of character with the surrounding area.
But it was agreed that the revised plan conformed with the requirements of Redbridge’s Unitary Developement Plan.
Roding Councillor Reg Woda said “I think this is a lot of building in a tight space.

“It might fit in with the UDP but the impact on road usage will be quite horrendous.”
Commitee chairman Councillor Geoffrey Brewer said: “The gardens at these houses are bigger than those in Monkham Grove and they cost £350,000 each. The planning brief was presented by the council. That was the basis on which we wanted it .”
The developement is a Housing Association project and has been granted subject to planning conditions, which include inspection of materials to be used and landscaping and hard surfacing plans.
