Walthamstow High Street public engagement 220619

The proposals for improving the High Street and Market aim to celebrate the unique character and heritage of the area, bringing out local stories and histories and creating moments of pause and intensity.

We want to keep Walthamstow High Street as a vibrant, varied place of trade and focus for the Town’s communities and activities.

Walthamstow town centre is changing, and the Council recognises the opportunity to make positive changes to ensure the future of the market and the surrounding shopping area..

International approval for our market

Walthamstow Market International Visitors 070619

More than 30 delegates to an International Markets Conference, organised by the Greater London Authority (GLA), spent a morning at Walthamstow Market to see the changes taking place at Europe’s longest street market.

The delegates, who had travelled from as far as Hong Kong, Portugal and the United States of America, saw the planned improvements at Rosebank Villas as well as the proposals for improving the junction of Palmerston Road and Willow Walk.

They were told how London Borough of Culture events, such as Art Night this Saturday, were taking place in the market area and about the new specialist markets that have opened in the area this year.

Briefings on Crate St James Street, the viewing gallery at 1B Coppermill Lane and how Heritage Lottery Fund grants helped pay for shop front improvements in St James Street.
