CMA secured approval for two schemes at the Waltham Forest Planning Committee this week.  First was a proposal for Manak Homes on Forest Road to redevelop a Texaco former petrol station with 39 new homes and two commercial units.  The scheme, by Dowen Farmer Architects, reaches up to five storeys in height on the main frontage, stepping down to the rear to respond to the local context.  The second scheme was on Blackhorse Lane and saw amendments approved to Morro’s Co-Living proposals for the site.  The original scheme by AHMM was approved in 2023, and these changes will see a further 49 shared living homes provided within two extra floors, taking the total to 321, along with a purpose built music venue and bar, to provide a new home for 'The Standard'.
