Reasons to invest

Welcome to Invest Waltham Forest.

Waltham Forest is rich in culture and diversity, where residents and businesses recognise their neighbourhoods as a great place to live and work.

I am so proud of what we have achieved over the last 10 years from building our legacy of being the first Borough of Culture, to growing Waltham Forest as an attractive destination to live, work and visit.

In 2023, we were awarded with the highest amount of levelling up funding from the DLUHC (Department of Levelling Up Housing and Communities) of any London borough and are set to receive £39.m. These will improve Leyton Tube Station, Walthamstow Town Centre, Chingford Mount and Highams Park.

Do get in touch with our invest team if you’d like any further information.
