On Monday, March 21, CPNAG will be holding a public meeting to keep you all informed, and enable you to discuss, three issues.
1) The first will be keeping you all abreast of the Millfields Road Public Toilet Block Site, planning application
2) The second issue is Pond House. For those of you living in the direct vicinity of the building (for those who don’t know – the small white mansion behind Clapton Pond, currently masked by green hoardings), you will have received a letter about this, along with an architect’s impression of the facade and also of the proposed six family houses to be built on the site currently occupied by the former St John’s Ambulance Brigade garages in Mildenhall Road. There is a planning application due to be submitted in the next few days, proposing the conversion of the house and the stable block into 5 flats, and the building of the aforementioned six houses on the southern edge of this property’s land in Mildenhall Road. Representatives of the developers have confirmed that they will be present at the meeting to answer any questions .
c) The third matter of interest is that the former White Hart Public House, just near the Lea Bridge Roundabout, has been bought by a company that runs a chain of pubs. They have contacted the community as they want to find out as much information as possible in order to, as they put it, restore the building to its former glory, and also to have the new establishment work for the community. Representatives of this company will also be present at the meeting.
We will also be able to update you all at this meeting on the Clapton Festival, the current status regarding the ongoing improvements and maintenance of the pond, and any other matters that arise in the intervening weeks.
The venue and exact times are still to be arranged and we will confirm these as soon as we have them. However, please put this date in your diaries.
Many thanks and kind regards
