About us


Waltham Forest is preparing its economic recovery plan to deal with the consequences of Covid-19. It was the Mayor's first ever London Borough of Culture for 2019 and the recipient of the Municipal Journal's Local Authority of the Year 2019. There is a buzz about our corner of London. People want to live here, raise a family and start a business here and the borough continues to live up to its reputation as the creative choice for the capital. We are bursting with culture and energy, bringing many opportunities, such as new creative workspace opening up for small businesses, cultural activities and heritage venues getting a new lease of life.
