Third Invest Waltham Forest launch event announced

by Marco Cillario Mon 30 January 2017, 4:08 pm

The third issue of Invest Waltham Forest magazine will be launched at Leyton Technical on Leyton's High Street in Leyton on 28 February.

The new edition of the business publication, about development and regeneration schemes in the borough, will be presented during a networking event from 5-7pm.

Waltham Forest Council’s chief executive Martin Esom; the current council leader, Councillor Chris Robbins and Councillor Clare Coghill, lead member for economic growth and high streets – who is to replace Robbins as council leader in May – will host the event. 

Invest Waltham Forest issue three will explore the economic benefits of green spaces and present how the council is weaving local history and culture into new development schemes, with Walthamstow being a microcosm of the challenges London is facing, such as gentrification.

Special sections will focus on the reopening of Lea Bridge station in May 2016 after 30 years; the William Morris Museum, named after the Walthamstow-born artist and socialist activist, and the rise of microbreweries in the borough. 

The magazine will also look at how the council and organisations in the borough are making use of sites that are being developed through “meanwhile use”.
