Re: FOI Approval FOI302779602 "Climate and ecological emergency in
relation to major projects".

Dear Ms Strickland,

I am writing to confirm that the Council has now completed its search for
the information which you requested on 1st February 2021 about Climate and
ecological emergency in relation to major projects.

The information supplied has been provided by the department responsible
for the service delivery.

The information supplied to you continues to be protected by the
Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. You are free to use it for your
own purposes, including any non-commercial research you are doing and for
the purposes of news reporting. Any other reuse, for example commercial
publication, would require the permission of the copyright holder.

The schemes listed are at different stages in the development process. 
Lee Valley Ice Centre has planning permission. Details of the application
material can be found on the Council's website:
https://builtenvironment.walthamforest.g...
and typing application ref: 194162 into the relevant box.
Details of the planning officer's report to Planning Committee, which
summarises climate change and biodiversity matters can be found here: 
https://democracy.walthamforest.gov.uk/i...
Town Square (I presume you mean The Mall redevelopment), has a resolution
to grant permission, subject to GLA referral and conclusion of the Section
106 agreement. Details of the application can be found on the Council's
website; reference 202491. Details of the committee report can be found
here: 
https://democracy.walthamforest.gov.uk/i...
Homebase site - this application has not been determined yet. The
application documents can be found on the Council's website; reference
202512; officers are currently assessing the climate change and
biodiversity impacts of the application. 
Whipps Cross Hospital is at an earlier pre-application stage and therefore
doesn't have documents that it is able to share.  Details of the
Hospital's proposals can be found
here: https://www.bartshealth.nhs.uk/future-wh...
