Sounding out the public

Walthamstow has already seen a lot of change and the Town Centre Area Action Plan (AAP) outlines the prospect of much more to come. Accordingly, Waltham Forest Council has engaged a team of specialists to make sure that the people of Walthamstow are fully aware of the plans are and to provide the opportunity to give their views.

With key sites such as the Scene and the improvements around the station already helping to transform Walthamstow Town Centre, the Council is keen to understand what other developments would be welcomed by local residents.

The AAP is the key plan for the future of the town centre, guiding and shaping its development. The Council has been using it for 12 months and it provides the basis for on-going discussions – not least with those living in the area.

Soundings have been appointed as engagement specialists to help make sure that local people understand the potential changes to their town centre. They will also gather the views of local residents by both contacting them directly, and holding a series of pop-up events, exhibitions and walk and talk events throughout January.

Exhibitions will be held in The Mall (outside Poundland) on Saturday 23 January between 11am and 5pm and in Walthamstow Library (main foyer) on Tuesday 26 January between 11am and 3pm and on Wednesday 27 January between 3pm and 7pm. They will also be held at The Mill on Saturday 30 January between 11am and 5pm.

Walk and talk events will start from The Mall (outside Poundland) on Saturday 23 January at 2pm and from The Mill on Saturday 30 January at 2pm.
