At its meeting on Tuesday 4 December Waltham Forest Council’s Planning Committee approved a planning application from CRATE Places UK to transform the former car park in St James Street into a temporary workspace bringing a range of commercial uses to this part of the town centre.
A former Council-owned car park between St James Street and Brunner Road has been unused for more than three years and has acted as a magnet for fly tipping.
What is planned?
Crate St James Street will provide up to 28 workspaces in a vibrant new workspace for small and growing local businesses and start-ups with shared areas for meeting clients.
LBWF will keep ownership of the land.
Who is doing the work?
Crate will be preparing the units off site and then lifting them into place.
