A plan to build a block of 74 flats on Snaresbrook station car park has been published following TfL’s decision to sell the land for development.
Residents are being consulted on the plans at meetings next week. The developers, Pocket Living, say that all of the flats would be affordable – costing 20% less than local prices – and would be sold to first-time buyers.
It would be the developer’s second site in Wanstead, following the flats built at Gardner Close, behind the Bull pub.
Earlier this year that development won an award for “Best Use of Brownfield Land” at the 2022 Planning Awards. That site has 20 flats, so the new proposal is significantly larger.
