Residents hope Mayor will intervene over Walthamstow Stadium bus scheme

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Residents hope Mayor will intervene over Walthamstow Stadium bus scheme Residents hope Mayor will intervene over Walthamstow Stadium bus scheme

PLANS to build a bus depot on the former car park of Walthamstow Stadium are set to be approved or rejected by the Mayor of London next week.

HCT Group's proposals to operate buses overnight at the site in Chingford Road, Walthamstow, were approved by Waltham Forest Council in May despite neighbours' opposition.

Now residents hope Boris Johnson may reject the scheme when he makes his decision on December 5.

Walthamstow Stadium Residents/Community Association chair Gail Penfold said: "Local residents have serious concerns over the noise at all times of the day and night and traffic congestion this scheme will add to the area."

HCT Group claims the site would provide hundreds of jobs.

Mr Johnson controversially approved an application to build a 294-home housing estate on the stadium last month.

Based on his dubious behavior last time there shouldn't be a cat in hell's chance of Boris intervening.

He is, however, nothing if not totally erratic, so who knows? He may fit it in between his mobottings and jollies to India.

The only thing Boris cares about is himself , he has no interest whatsoever about what goes on in Waltham Forest and anyone who thinks otherwise is living in a dream world.
