The application for the 10.4-acre store and car park site in Goodmayes in Redbridge, north-east London, follows months of extensive consultation undertaken by the residential development business.
Weston Homes has made various amendments to its initial plans and intends to hold another community consolidation weekend over 29th and 30th November 2019.
Under the submitted proposals, the development will provide 1,280 new homes with the heights of the various buildings reduced and the design of the main landmark tower revised.

Of the new homes within the development, 414 will be affordable, providing local people with a combination of social rented, shared ownership and discounted market sale homes, with 27% of the homes being three-bedroom family dwellings.
The scheme will also feature 7.9 acres of landscaped grounds, school playground space, residential amenity space and landscaped roofscape, complete with tree-lined pedestrian walkways and public open areas.
A new Tesco store, equivalent in size to the current store, will be built in the car park and replace the old store, which will be demolished.
