More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Last last chance continued

"The Executive Committee yesterday concluded that it is minded to consider whether to seek a Judicial Review against the London Borough of Waltham Forest decision to grant planning permission for housing development on the Essex Wharf site.

The Authority will be issuing a Pre Action letter to the London Borough of Waltham Forest and the information gathered from the response to this letter will assist the Authority in determining its course of action.

A decision on whether to seek a Judicial Review will be made at the next Executive Committee meeting on 23 June 2011."
