Visit to Sunderland Road

We were impressed by our tour of the Sutherland Road, Walthamstow affordable housing scheme by Levitt Bernstein architects which shows what can be achieved with considerate design. The scheme includes generous balconies and corridors and a beautifully landscaped communal garden. The car parking is kept to a minimum so that it does not overly impede on the use and enjoyment of the courtyard.

We also noticed that Waltham Forrest Council has introduced pavements that extend across intersections giving priority to pedestrians.
