We still have a long way to go, but things are definitely starting to move in the right direction. Here are some photos of where we are with 2a Winchester Road, including a download of the planning statement that forms part of our change of use application, which we have recently submitted.
We have applied for a change of use to enable us to create our dream bar, which we think will become a real asset to Highams Park...
"We plan to develop the front space of the shop into a friendly, relaxed tasting room with wine display, wine tasting machine and seating for the consumption of wine, beer, spirits and soft drinks. The rear internal area will offer additional seating for drinking, eating and for tasting events. Also included within the boundaries of the plan are the enclosed yard and the forecourt area."
We would be really grateful for your help!
If you're in favour of our concept then you can email with your comments in support of the plans. As Waltham Forest are currently upgrading their Planning Portal you need to email any comments directly to the below address.
You need to include your own address along with the application reference number 202971, noting the site address: 2a Winchester Road, Highams Park, E4 9LN.
Thank you so much for you continued support, and to all those who have already made a comment following Scott's Facebook link last week.
Now I'm off to point at some more ceilings!
Ceilings are down, ready for vast amounts of soundproofing to be installed
"Yes, I can confirm ceilings are definitely down"
The tasting / events room & cellar bar, how romantic
