Residents gathered on the Raven Road Industrial Estate in February to protest against City Plumbing Ltd’s plans to build 18 apartments adjacent to – and with access to – Crescent Road in South Woodford.
A petition has also gathered over 1,000 signatures, and Redbridge Council has received more than 100 objections to the proposal. “If the plan is approved, the trees and vegetation separating Crescent Road from the Raven Road Industrial Estate will be lost forever. The character of Crescent Road – a delightful no-through road with Victorian and early Edwardian terraces on one side – will be destroyed,” said a spokesperson for the Save Crescent Road Action Group, who have asked for the application to be referred to the council’s Planning Committee.
A decision is expected at the end of March.
