“Waltham Forest’s Conservative Councillors are extremely disappointed and concerned at L&Q’s unacceptable out of hand dismissal of the serious offer made by Bob Morton for Walthamstow Stadium. L&Q seem, in contradiction of their claims to being an organisation that listens to the views of local people and their elected representatives, to be totally unwilling to even discuss Mr Morton’s offer which would deliver the mixed use, leisure led, scheme that is what people here actually want. L&Q, far from being the community minded and socially responsible body they like to claim to be, are clearly now acting in the worst traditions of avaricious private developers.
We very strongly urge L&Q to reconsider their hasty and ill judged rejection of Bob Morton’s offer and to do the right thing for Waltham Forest and work with him to achieve a deal.”
Cllr Matt Davis
Leader of the Conservative Council Group, London Borough of Waltham Forest
