Waltham Forest is an ambitious Borough. Driven by culture and the innate creativity of our residents, we have developed innovative ways to build our communities and transform our Council.

We are an organisation bursting with energy and opportunity. Over the coming year we will build on our incredible year as the Mayor’s first London borough of Culture 2019.  We will work with our communities to set out what we want Waltham Forest to be by 2030; how that relates to the ever-changing world/ climate emergency, and what that means for the services and infrastructure that we need to provide.  We need to make sure that everything we are doing today supports that vision, and helps our residents succeed in an increasingly uncertain world.
