CMA secured approval at the Waltham Forest Planning Committee this week for Living by Scape’s proposals for Blackhorse Lane.  The scheme, designed by AHMM, will see the creation of a new cultural venue for Waltham Forest providing opportunities for community participation along with a connected bar/cafe and a separate retail unit.  The proposal also includes 272 studio rooms of purpose-built shared housing on the upper floors alongside supporting internal and external amenity space on each floor, which will help meet local housing needs and add to the range of housing options for local people in the Blackhorse Lane area.
