Patchworks will deliver high quality regeneration reflecting the heritage and culture of the area, providing new homes, including affordable housing, new commercial and community space, and attractive, welcoming gardens and play areas. The proposals will deliver a greener environment with energy efficient buildings, over 130 trees including 80 new trees planted and environmental improvements along Forest Road. This includes new cycle lanes extending the Council’s “Enjoy Waltham Forest” network, new amenities, including a cycle hub, and welcoming pedestrian routes supporting the residential and working community, integrating with existing assets and amenities in the area.
The application incorporates changes made to the proposals since the Vision was presented to the community in July 2020, including:
- Overall number of units reduced from 650 to 583
- Height of the tallest building will be 18 storeys
- Building heights reduced from 7 storeys to 4 storeys in sensitive locations along the northern boundary
- Size of The Glades public open space increased and landscaping, sustainable drainage systems (SuDs) and biodiversity increased
- Reduced width along The Lane
- Parking reduced to support a landscape-led approach that ensures pedestrians and cyclists are prioritised

Homebase currently has a lease on the Fulbourne Road site. The scheme that has been prepared is a proposal that will come forward when Homebase vacates the site, which is due in early 2021.
Inland Homes is bringing forward this residential-led development of the site in support of the aims of the Waltham Forest Draft Local Plan that identifies the Forest Road corridor and Wood Street area as a regeneration area. Patchworks has been co-designed and developed with the benefit of significant community and stakeholder engagement. Over the last few months, hundreds of people have taken part by giving feedback and taking part in question and answer sessions.
During the Covid-19 crisis we have not been able to hold face to face meetings and exhibitions, but we have done our utmost to ensure easily accessible communication with the community via the FulbourneRoadRegen.co.uk website, through physical newsletters, a Freepost JTP address and a Freephone number.
On validation of the planning application the Council will run its normal statutory consultation process.
