(continued from 9 March)
You’ll remember that after LB Waltham Forest passed the third development proposal for Essex Wharf in January, the Lee Valley park authority tried to force a public enquiry. The mechanism for this is to ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (Eric Pickles) to call the application in.
We’ve now heard that the Department for Communities and Local Government has decided not to call the application in.
The decision and covering letter are on the LVF website, with a press release from the Lea Valley Federation and a statement from Leabridge Ward Councillors.
