The plans to convert the corner of Leyton High Road and Hainault Roadinto flats etc. has been refused by the Council’s Planning Department. The planners say that the developments design, height and bulk would constitute and over- development of the site, out of character with the street scene and townscape, and would thus be detrimental to the visual amenities of the area.
Of course the developers could appeal or produce another plan more in keeping with the area. I will keep you informed of any further developments.
