It’s now almost a year since the Stadium closed and both L&Q and the Council seem to have done nothing to move this fowards.
- See the following letter from L&Q to Neil Gerrard MP, they have clearly changed their stance. They told us last year that plans for the buildings future would have already been submitted by now, they have not – now they talk about a ‘viable long term project’ – which means it will likely stay empty for years.
In this letter they mention ‘varied reasons’ why our lease offer is not sustainable – yet have not supplied or communicated any. We can’t think of any reasons why leasing could not happen and if L&Q care to communicate their ‘varied reasons’ for this not being sustainable, we would be happy to address this.
- Meanwhile, Waltham Forest Council promised an independent study, by Urban Practitioners, about the use of the land by the end of 2008 – this still has not been published. Why is this?
In response to this total lack of action, we are organising a demonstration on Saturday 4th July, it will start at 12 noon and people should gather outside the stadium. We need to get this back on the agenda, get questions answered and get L&Q and the Council to address this mess!
