There are a huge number of tasks involved with securing land for a venture such as the Forest Gate Community Garden. These include securing a lease from the landowner (in this case Newham Council) and submitting a proposal for Planning Permission, which is up for public consultation on 4 February 2015.
Please support our cause by signing up to the Newham Planning Portal and leaving your comments on our application before the deadline of 31 January 2015. It all helps to confirm the demand we know exists for the Forest Gate Community Garden.
First visit the Newham Planning Portal and then search for 136 Earlham Grove. You can find our Planning Permission application here>
The proposal asks for: Temporary change of use from derelict site to a community garden with raised beds, paths, social open space, seating and potentially storage/covered area. | Hostel 136 Earlham Grove Forest Gate London E7 9AS
You need to register with the portal to be able to leave your comments. You can then leave a message of your support which will be filed under the proposal and emailed to you.
Have your say and be proud of the contribution you are making to a new and desirable green space in the heart of Forest Gate.
