Parker Dairies- Callout for Help to Find them an E17 Home!
This week, Parker Dairies, who have been delivering Milk to Walthamstow residents for 120 years have been in touch to let residents know that unfortunately their lease at their current site in Wood Street will not be renewed as their landlord have requested this space.
This means Parker Dairies are looking for a new home from the autumn of this year where they can operate their 26 milk rounds from with space for parking 18 electric milk floats and 5 vans. They are keen to stay within the Waltham Forest area and need approximately 10,000 sq feet. Finding such a space is proving difficult so if readers of this e-newsletter are able to help Parker Dairies with their request for assistance please respond to this email and I will put you in touch.
I hope the Planners will reject any plans for this site as a community asset i.e. having fresh milk delivered to my doorstep in time for breakfast is a real asset. If the planning process is to have any relevance this site must remain as a dairy/distribution site - not more housing! Adrian
