A Women's Centre for Waltham Forest


We the undersigned who live and /or work in the London Borough of Waltham Forest want the Council to sell the St James St carpark site E17 7PJ to Rooms of our Own as originally proposed.

Now that all the development on South Grove is coming forward, we the residents would welcome the project developed by Rooms of our Own in conjunction with Thornsett Developers to go ahead. We think that the plan to have a café open to all throughout the evening would be a very welcome and beneficial addition to St James St. We welcome the proposals to have collaborative, hi-tech workspaces for startups, businesses and charities for women to address the ongoing gender imbalances in our society. We like the idea of having good quality passivhaus housing units of a decent size, rather than the inadequate flats that some developers provide. The carpark has been boarded up for too long. We want the Council to allow Rooms of our Own build their exciting project there.
