The owners of The Mall in Walthamstow are planning a radical overhaul of the shopping centre including new housing, more shops and a public square and gardens.
Members of the public will be able to find out more, when an exhibition on the full proposals goes on show at The Mall on 8, 9 and 16 April.
Residents are invited to give feedback on the designs at workshops held at Walthamstow Library on 9 and 16 April.
Owners of The Mall, Capital & Regional propose to inject £120m of private investment into the redevelopment. It is expected that the scheme will generate hundreds of new jobs and enhance the night scene, while providing new “high quality” homes in the area.
Separate workshops will also be held in nearby Walthamstow Library on Saturday 9 and Saturday 16 April. These workshops have been designed to give locals a chance to have their say and input ideas on the public square and gardens in particular.
Capital & Regional executive director Mark Bourgeois said: “Walthamstow has a great deal of potential and we believe our proposals will tap into this and build on the progressive work that has already taken place in the town centre.
“We have worked hard to ensure our proposals are aligned with a wider vision for the borough and we are delighted that we can now offer members of the public the chance to give their feedback. We hope that people are excited by the potential development and will support the chance to enhance the community offer in Walthamstow.”
The exhibition will be open at the following times in The Mall:
- Friday 8 April: 10am – 6pm
- Saturday 9 April: 10am – 6pm
- Saturday 16 April: 10am – 6pm
