Welcome to Invest Waltham Forest

About Invest Waltham Forest

Waltham Forest is a diverse, creative and vital part of the London we love. In 2019, Waltham Forest became the first ever London Borough of Culture, where we saw residents, businesses and visitors celebrate their diverse cultures and the brilliant borough we are. The strengths seen through the Borough of Culture continued through the Covid-19 pandemic, with our residents and businesses showing a sense of community and acts of kindness.

Although we are now dealing with different challenges including the ongoing cost of living and climate crises, our priority is to support our residents and businesses through our inclusive growth and economy strategy. To do this, we are focusing on jobs recovery, business support, safe and healthy living, broadening our cultural programme, bringing a new university and restored theatre into the borough, and implementing our new 15-minute-neighbourhood scheme.

Our award winning teams build on the work we have achieved so far with our partners, to build a brighter future for Waltham Forest.
