Let us know what you want to see in the Walthamstow High Street Night Time Enterprise Zone

Following the announcement that Walthamstow High Street is the London's first-ever Night Time Enterprise Zone pilot, we will be running a series of engagement events during October and November with local people and businesses.

If you are a community organisation or run a business on the High Street, we will be calling in to run through a short survey with you or to arrange a longer interview about your perceptions and ideas for Walthamstow High Street.

The results will be used to look at ways we can support local organisations and businesses to stay open later into the evening and improve access to shops and services after 6pm.

As restoration begins on the former Granada/EMD cinema in Hoe Street, we would love to hear your memories of the much-loved building.

Did you work at the venue and have some behind the scenes stories to share.

Email us your memories and pictures at the link below, writing 'Granada/EMD memories' in the subject line.

We aim to include as many as possible in an official archive of the Grade II* listed community building as it enters its next exciting phase.

This is the first stage of work following the design competition last year.

Watch out for more changes that are on their way in the Town Centre.

We need to change. Not the climate

Climate emergency

We have declared a Climate Emergency in Waltham Forest.

We all need to work together locally to address this global issue.

Solar panels save money and protect the environment

Residents across Waltham Forest are coming together as part of a group buying scheme to install solar panels on their houses.

Residents can now join Solar Together London, the solar photovoltaic (PV) group-buying scheme. It is free to register and there is no obligation to install panels. 

Solar Together London helps Waltham Forest homeowners feel confident they are paying the right price for a high-quality installation from a vetted installer which will boost local renewable energy generation.

The new scheme follows three highly successful schemes run across the country last year which led to over 1,650 installations with Waltham Forest having 936 registrants last year.

Solar Together is one of the many ways Waltham Forest is acting to counter the Climate Emergency, declared by the local authority this summer.

Find out whether you’re eligible for the scheme and register here.
