A council is holding another drop-in session to answer questions on its draft local plan, despite residents’ complaints last week.

Those living in the north of the borough were frustrated by a lack of notice given to them when an event to discuss Waltham Forest Council’s draft development plan for the next 15 years was held in Chingford.

Tonight, a similar meeting is being held in the south of the borough, where council officers will be able to answer the public’s questions on proposals for buildings and developments in areas including Leyton, Leytonstone and Lea Bridge.

The south of the borough drop-in session will run from 4pm until 8.30pm at The Score Centre, at 100 Oliver Road in Leyton tonight (Monday August 12).

The council tweeted about the event this morning, saying said: “Today’s the day to see our vision and have your say on how Waltham Forest will look in 2035.

“Come to a drop-in session in #Leyton to see our vision and share your views. Let us know you’ll be joining us.”

These drop-in events are being held at a busy time in the summer holidays while some people are away on holiday.

This, the lack of notice and the “poor” organisation of the drop-in event last week have left residents frustrated.

The council posted leaflets to households and businesses for the north of the borough event last week, but not everyone affected received these.

The authority said it was investigating the issue with leaflet distribution and it is currently holding a full public consultation on the draft local plan.
