Of course, it never really went away. The fenced-off field on Wanstead High Street has been sitting there, unoccupied, just as it has been doing for the past 50 years or so. But the discussion about what its future should be has returned.
Regular readers might cast their minds back more than a year when Wansteadium published a set of ideas about the future use of the field. These ideas were prepared by an informal working group of interested Wanstead residents, and brought some planning and architectural experience to the thorny issue. Many of you left comments or sent emails, and these have been reflected in a revised document. The new paper assesses the viability and practicality of different ideas. Wansteadium readers are invited once again to read the paper and leave comments. You can open the document here
