Plans for flats between Draycot Road and Seagry Road refused


A planning application to build five flats on a strip of land between Draycot Road and Seagry Road, adjacent to the A12, was refused last week.

“This small patch is home to many mature roses, shrubs and wild flowers and is therefore an important spot for biodiversity, so Redbridge Council were right to stop this development. As more and more of us pave our front gardens or put down artificial grass, small patches of land like this are a crucial safety net for nature,” said Vanya Marks from Wanstead Climate Action.
