Artist's impression of a proposed housing scheme for Evergreen Field in Wanstead have been released

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Evergreen Field development images released Evergreen Field development images released

The first images have been released of planned housing on a protected green space.

The owner of Evergreen Field in High Street, Wanstead, Dalco Developments hopes to build seven houses, two flats and two shops on the site.

The company has released an artist's impression of what the development would look like on the site, which has been closed to the public for 15 years.

The site is protected under Redbridge Council's open space policy and the authority has previously said housing would not be permitted.

The Wanstead Society, which was formed to fight development on the field 15 years ago have submitted alternative proposals, including a community garden.

Dalbir Singh Sanger said: "It really is up to the public what they want.

"These plans will not block the church being seen from the road and will add something to the community.

"The space in the middle can legally be used for 14 markets a day and it will include a nice garden for people to sit in.

"I need to make money off the site and we can't leave it empty.

"If you go down the road a little bit there is a five-storey block of flats. There is space on the land for 50 flats, we are only proposing nine units.

"If these plans aren't accepted, we will just continue fighting with the public for the next 20 years and going round in circles."

Mr Sanger is meeting with council officers tomorrow to discuss the plans.

What is the point of this by the land owner if "any" housing is not permitted? Why waste money on architects plans etc if the use for housing will never be granted?

Council Estate Comes to Wanstead with unsightly swing park.

The odious person has already made his veiled threats in past reports.

I hope he loses on this 'investment' It is like buying agricultural land and trying to get permission. But then again who knows these days, especially with the gutless planning officers and Toothless Clowns in the Wanstead Society who seem to wake up after the event.

he does this because he knows that as with the rest of Redbridge,the residents are changing and that eventually noone will care about what it looks like where they live most will only care about what they can get.......sadly the better caring residents are all moving away....

Who gives a flying one?! You "need" to jog back to Ilford son!

"If these plans aren't accepted, we will just continue fighting with the public for the next 20 years and going round in circles."

Oh dear.

The public will be here for the next 20 years. Hope you don't get giddy before then!

Like the small bit of Land near the Monkhams Pub, the Developer tried all sorts and eventually tried to bring out the 'Race' card. No doubt he has one up his sleeve already.

I know people need somewhere to live but is this really the best that the architects could come up with? The price will probably be out of range of the average young family who these would be aimed at anyway - so what's the point.
The developer says: "It really is up to the public what they want." In which case leave it as it is. I quite like the rats that run around in there, anyway...

Mr Sanger bought the site for £250,000, less than the price of a 2 bedroomed flat in Wanstead. He bought it without outline planning permission. If it had it would have been sold for millions. He knew precisely what he was doing when he bought it and took a gamble. He thinks he can buy for thousands and sell for millions. Hopefully for Wanstead's sake his gamble doesn't pay off.

We have to stop this so-called developer. His development will make Wanstead High St look like Milton Keynes.
