A planning application to build a four-storey block of flats on Evergreen Field has been submitted.

The site – a patch of fenced-off land on Wanstead High Street next to Christ Church Green – has not been inhabited since 1944, when two homes that stood there were bombed and then demolished in 1967. Redbridge Council is due to make a decision on the application in October. If approved, the development will include a nursery on the ground floor along with 24 flats and a new public open space.
