A consultation has been launched on proposals to create two new conservation areas in Waltham Forest. 

Areas around Lloyd Park and Bakers Arms could be given the status, which places restrictions on developments in order to preserve their character. 

The architecture around Lloyd Park is particularly notable, according to the authority, because of a significant amount of Warner housing in the area. 

The proposed conservation area also includes the grade II* listed William Morris Gallery. 

Cllr Clare Coghill, cabinet member for economic growth and high streets, said, “Both of these areas are very special in their own right and providing the protection conservation area status affords will help us retain and enhance them for future generations. 

“The special architectural and historic features in these unique locations give them each a character all of their own. 

“It’s important that as the borough goes through an unprecedented level of growth that we are mindful of our heritage and preserve the appearance of the areas that make Waltham Forest special.”

Bakers Arms, located on crossroads of Lea Bridge Road, Hoe Street and High Road, Leyton, includes the grade II-listed Master Bakers Benevolent Institution Almshouses, which were built between 1857 and 1866. 

The consultations will be launched on Friday (May 15) and will run for four weeks. 

For the Lloyd Park area, a drop-in session will be held in the William Morris Gallery on June 3, between 4pm and 8pm. 

For the Bakers Arms, a session will take place at the Hornbeam Centre in Hoe Street on June 4, between 3pm and 7pm. 

Waltham Forest already has 12 conservation areas.
