Welcome to our consultation on a proposed development of nine new residential units at 99 Forest Side, Chingford.


On this website you can see the proposals in more detail and submit any comments that you have. We are grateful for any comments received and we thank you in advance for taking the time to review the proposals.


We are keen to ensure that we can take on board as many of the comments as possible as it is important to us that we create a truly beautiful development that is a good neighbour and one that provides much needed new family homes in the local area.


It is proposed to develop the site to deliver a high-quality residential development comprising seven residential flats and two dwellinghouses with nine associated parking spaces, landscaping, refuse stores and cycle parking.

The main planning benefits of the scheme are:

  1. The regeneration of a derelict brownfield site comprising of 9 high-quality new homes that contribute towards the Council’s housing growth strategy.

  2. A significant improvement to the visual appearance of the site through the delivery of contemporary new buildings that will contribute positively to the regeneration of the wider area.

  3. Providing a mix of housing sizes to meet current and future housing needs, including a number of new family units that complement the context of the local area.

  4. A fully designed landscaping scheme that includes a pocket woodland area to the Forest Side frontage that will assist in improving on site biodiversity and increase urban greening.


More details on the project aspirations and the proposed design can be seen on the link below.


​Your views are important to us. We are keen to hear your views to help us shape the detailed scheme, and to understand if you think we have got the detail right. We hope that you will take a few minutes to send your thoughts using the comment form.


Following discussions with Waltham Forest Council, it was decided to carry out an online consultation with local people. We have therefore tried to provide the right level of information. Please forward these details onto anyone else you think may be interested (including those without internet access). You can use the comment form to record the views of others. All comments received will be fully considered.


Please ensure your feedback reaches us no later than 30 June 2022. There will be a further opportunity to provide your views directly to the Council once the planning application is submitted in the coming weeks.

The site at the side of the Queen Elizabeth public house was once occupied by the Queen Elizabeth Riding School that ceased operating in 2013 after the business encountered financial difficulties. The site is in a poor state of repair and has not been used since it was vacated.


The site is currently in the ownership of the public house but a sale has been agreed between the current owners and VFund.
