Residents work with Council on Mini Holland

Over 200 residents turned out to take part in the Mini Holland Walthamstow Village post-trial workshops on Thursday 6 November. Four workshops took place at different locations in the Walthamstow Village area.



Residents joined Councillors and officers to study the results of the trial, provide feedback, and offer views and suggestions on future proposals in order to help shape an improved scheme.


“It was great to see so many residents take time out of their day to work with us on this important ongoing project,” said Councillor Clyde Loakes, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment. “We are keen to design a scheme that really works for residents and businesses in Walthamstow Village.”


The Council recognises that the best way to strike the right balance is to engage with residents and make community input a vital component in the scheme’s development.


The trial, workshops and the huge amount of feedback by survey, email, social media and other communications has all helped provide a real sense of how people feel about the various issues in the design and the impact of the proposed improvements.


The next phase of the Mini Holland scheme in Walthamstow Village will be the launch of the consultation on 28 November. All affected homes in the area will have the consultation document posted through their doors by the Council’s Traffic Team to ensure everyone gets a chance to have their say.


The consultation will run through until 19 December and will include some firm proposals about how the scheme can be implemented. As illustrated, the Council is eager to gather as much feedback as possible.


Details of drop in sessions to discuss proposals with Council officers will be publicised in Waltham Forest News and on the Council’s website over the coming weeks.
