The famous Walthamstow Stadium that hosted racing for 75 years, may soon be turned into flats.
A plan to build around 300 flats and a leisure complex at the east London stadium was last night approved by Waltham Forest Council.
Local MPs came together and urged for the plan to be rejected. MPs opposing the plans included Conservative Iain Duncan Smith and Labour's Stella Creasy. They argued that the scheme provides no social rented properties and that few of the flats will be affordable.
However, london Housing Association L&Q says the plans to include the new homes and public spaces will create new jobs and will bring investment to the area.
