Yesterday I attended the consultation about the new Ferry Lane development being carried out by Legal & General. They expect to submit an Outline Planning Application shortly for 311 new homes. This site is between the Blackhorse Road Car Park and the flood relief channel.
Beside the old Standard pub opposite Blackhorse Road station, a planning application 2013/0554 has been submitted by BPTW Partnership for 483 dwellings and 519 rooms for student accommodation.
In this comparatively small area close to the proposed Walthamstow Wetlands over 1,000 new homes will be created over the next few years. The developers don't expect to sell everything immediately so the projects will be staggered and the speed with which they will be completed will depend on demand. Getting mortgages is still difficult.
