Walthamstow dog stadium to be turned into affordable housing

Walthamstow Stadium, one of London’s last greyhound racing tracks, is to be redeveloped as a ‘family friendly’ housing estate

A report commissioned by Walthamstow Forest Council will provide a blueprint for future development of the stadium – built by William Chandler in 1933 and closed last year after 70 years.

The social housing developer London & Quadrant, which owns the site, will lodge a planning application in the autumn for an as yet undisclosed number of dwellings, but believed to be in the hundreds. The council’s report also stressed the need to conserve original features of the site, such as the 1932 art deco entrance arch and recommends the entrance building be used as shops, offices or leisure space. It also identifies a need for family-sized units rather than small apartments for single people or couples.
