Answer for Alternative Technology Centre

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Royal Gunpowder Mills is in Waltham Abbey, Essex and lies to the north of the M25. It is surrounded by the Lee Valley Park and is a visitor attraction for schools and others.The proposal for an Alternative Technology Centre has not come to the LDA. The Agency is therefore unable to form a view about how it might fit into the regeneration of the Lee Valley and boost tourism in the area. .
