Waltham Forest Council has been working to reduce carbon emissions and improve the local environment for the last decade, and we know many local people have too.

That’s why we’ve launched a survey to gather the views of local people on how to tackle the climate emergency.

It is aimed at everyone who lives or works in Waltham Forest to get their views on how important tackling the climate emergency is to them, what actions they are taking already and what future priorities should be for working together to find a local solution for this global challenge.

We are also offering all subscribers to our climate emergency newsletter the chance to win a bike worth £400 and other fab prizes.

Waltham Forest Council is aiming to develop 92 Leyton Green Road to improve local facilities and provide new homes.
