Situated in North-East London in the Borough of Redbridge, is Heron Mews; a through road off Balfour Road. The Mews contains 17 properties used for commercial purposes.
The Mews is not part of a Conservation Area. A parachute mine fell onto Mansfield Road, just west of the Mews in World War II.
The two storey properties have rendered and painted brickwork facades surrounded by a tarmacadam road surface with intact garages and restricted parking.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets and nowadays they are used primarily for commercial purposes.
Before and since 2003 there have been a small amount of planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; the complete demolition of many properties and the erection of newer developments.
