Town Hall proposals will encourage greater public use

Planning application submitted for first phase

Waltham Forest Town Hall

The Town Hall Campus transformation programme will transform the way the Council operates and delivers services to residents.

It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a new neighbourhood in the heart of the Borough, refurbish cherished historic buildings and open up the campus to the public.

There are three main reasons for doing this:

  1. Opening up the Town Hall Campus that can be enjoyed by residents, visitors and staff and creating a new neighbourhood in Chapel End ward.
  2. To contribute much needed housing, with 50% affordable, by releasing council offices in other parts of the borough that are expensive to run, not fit for purpose, and confusing for customers who have to travel between sites.
  3. Significant investment into our historic buildings means the Grade II-listed Town Hall and Assembly Hall are protected and preserved for future generations to enjoy.

Town Hall plan

A planning application for the first phase of work has now been submitted and residents can comment on that application as part of the statutory planning process.

This first phase opens up the Town Hall Campus to make it more accessible to the public.

Work will include:

  • Refurbishing the Grade II listed Town Hall and Assembly Hall while protecting their heritage status
  • Opening up and pedestrianising the area around the fountain, replacing it with an accessible water feature
  • Restoring the War Memorial to its former glory

As further phases of the scheme are finalised there will be future opportunities for residents to comment before planning applications are submitted.
