Filling a gap

We're getting used to seeing large buildings shoe-horned into every available corner of Walthamstow. Here though, someone has decided to build a little house, set back from the street and cautiously nestled up against the shop next door, where a much larger three-storey building would fit right in. I've no idea if that's all the planning department would allow, or whether the developer considered alternatives. Either way, it would be great to see the Forest Road / Palmerston Road corner rounded off with houses, to replace the hideous advertising hoarding that dominates the crossroads, and perhaps this is a start.
