It didn’t take long, but the bids are now being invited for the former Wanstead Police Station on Spratt Hall Road. Details of the building and plot are now available on Rightmove, though no asking price has been indicated.
As a large corner plot with room for parking and outbuildings, in an absolutely prime position, the site will no doubt attract a lot of interest from developers.
For many in Wanstead the sale will have echoes of the sale by the Metropolitan Police of Evergreen Field to developers. The land remains empty and somewhat in limbo, many years later.
