The Council’s Mini-Holland Programme has been nominated as a finalist in the following categories: ‘Best Cycle Network Infrastructure Project’; ‘Best Cycling Network Strategy’ and ‘Best Innovation – Planning Technique’.

Councillor Clyde Loakes, Deputy Leader of Waltham Forest Council and Cabinet Member for Environment said Waltham Forest is leading the charge on sustainable transport and environmental health.

“It is a great honour to not only be nominated for these significant awards but to be named as the host venue for the very first Cycle Planning Awards.”
