THE SECOND phase in bringing 79 new homes above a station car park is about to begin.

On Monday (April 24) building work above Walthamstow Central station car park will start.

Ahead of its start, developers Solum Regeneration is warning rail users of a reduction in available parking to 90 spaces.

This reduction will remain throughout the work which is anticipated to last a further two years.

As well as 79 new homes, the existing car park will be upgraded with improvements promised for pedestrian access to Queen’s Road Station and the station square.

Solum has not yet confirmed how many will be classed as affordable.

The site will have working hours of 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to 1pm on Saturday.

Work will not be taking place on Sundays or bank holidays and there are no plans for works overnight.

A spokesperson for Solum said: “To create a safe secure building zone on site, it is necessary to reduce the number of car parking spaces at the station.

“We would therefore like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these forthcoming works.”

The first phase of Solum’s Walthamstow Central station project saw them build 69 homes, a Travelodge Hotel and a number of retail units.
