Share your thoughts on the Waltham Forest Town Hall transformation

Town Hall plans

The Town Hall Campus transformation programme 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. In doing so, it will transform the way the Council operates and delivers services to residents.

We are inviting local residents to be part of a focus group to learn about your views on the Town Hall and its future plans. Your feedback will help us with our work to improve the Town Hall and develop a vision for its future.

Discussion groups will take place at Waltham Forest Town Hall and we will provide light refreshments and a £25 thank you payment to cover your time and costs. The focus groups will take place on the following dates and times and each session can hold 8 – 10 people.

  • Tuesday 24 September, 6 - 7.15pm and 7.30 - 8.45pm
  • Wednesday 25 September, 6 – 7.15pm and 7.30 – 8.45pm

Your chance to comment on plans for library

Lea Bridge Library

Applications for planning permission and listed building consent have been submitted for works to improve Lea Bridge Library.

Plans to improve this important Listed Building include a rear extension to the existing library for use as a cafe and additional alterations to the existing building, installation of solar panels and some landscaping.

This work is part of the Council’s continuing investment in improving libraries, which includes providing extra facilities at the heart of our communities.

This will create a new library plus facility matching those available in Chingford, Walthamstow, Leyton and Leytonstone.
