Waltham Forest Council is a local authority in north east London. In 2019, it was the first ever London Borough of Culture – awarded by the Mayor of London – and the recipient of the Municipal Journal’s Local Authority of the Year.
We are building a legacy on the back of these significant achievements by investing in our heritage buildings, opening new cultural venues and ensuring our borough is an inclusive place for all.
Bursting with energy and opportunity, Waltham Forest is a place changing rapidly with business growth up and employment at its highest rate ever. It is a place people want to live, raise a family and start a business.
We are creating liveable neighbourhoods, where people have access to quality housing and the services and facilities that they need, along with vibrant town centres that have thriving shops, restaurants and entertainment.
