Tell us how Leyton should look in 2035

Draft Local Plan South Waltham Forest leaflet page one

If you live or work in Leyton, we’re giving you a special chance to tell us how you think the area should look in 2035.

The Draft Local Plan sets out guidelines on our ideas and now we want your views.

Leyton is identified as one of the major growth areas, so we have joined force with Connecting Communities to hold a special lunchtime event on Monday 5 August, 1pm to 3pm at Score Centre, 100 Oliver Road, Leyton, E10 5JY.

Places are limited due to the size of the venue so please book as soon as possible. A light lunch will be provided.

Your chance to shape our borough

There’s a lot of work taking place across the borough to make sure we have the homes, work places, transport network, schools, health and leisure facilities that our residents will need in the future.

To help us make sure development happens in a coordinated way we have prepared a Draft Local Plan which will cover the period from 2020 to 2035.

It sets out how the borough can achieve an appropriate balance between physical, social, economic development and environmental protection through growth and sustainable development.

This Plan will shape developments and guide decisions on the location, amount and types of development the borough requires to meet local needs.

When finally adopted, it will replace a number of other planning documents, so all our policies are in one place.

The Draft Local Plan recognises the different needs of different parts of the borough and has three sections covering the north, central and south areas of Waltham Forest.

Make your views known on the Plan's proposals

Draft Local Plan July 2019 cover

We want the Draft Local Plan to reflect what residents want to see our borough look like by 2035 so we want to hear from as many individual residents as possible,

If you are involved with a community group and wish to make a collective response that is welcome too. Subject to staff availability we are also willing to meet with community groups to discuss the proposals for their area.

Reference copies of the Draft Local Plan are available in each library across the borough but may not be borrowed.

A full version of the Draft Local Plan is available on the Council’s website along with the supporting documents and a link to the online response form.

The consultation closes on Monday 30 September 2019.
