Focus has previously reported on the massive high rise flat developments in Waltham Forest.
Forest Ward Focus Team members were with residents at the Planning Committee when the Council agreed the over development of buildings, of up to 18 storeys, in Lea Bridge Road.
Only recently Leyton Focus Team member Bob Sullivan and residents spoke against the 16 storey block at the end of Dunedin Road.
It appears that developers are having a field day as the Council continually agree the building of unaffordable multi high rise flats in the borough.
The latest plan submitted by the owners of the Mall shopping centre in Walthamstow is to build four blocks including one of 27 storeys! Currently local residents have presented a 2,000 plus petition to the Council in protest against the plans.

Focus says: In our experience the Labour Council never listens to residents and carries on agreeing the over development of every bit of land for multi high rise unaffordable flats.
