One of the fastest growing economies in the capital and recently named by the Mayor of London as the first London Borough of Culture, Waltham Forest is seeing unprecedented opportunities to grow and create exciting places for existing as well as new communities that live and work in the borough.
Putting culture at the heart of urban regeneration, Waltham Forest will invest £1.3m to support creative industries that will help to drive further investment and provide new jobs, homes, and social infrastructure.
With 81 potential development sites identified by the GLA Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment, and a range of sites and areas having excellent potential to deliver growth as indicated by the emerging Growth Strategy, the borough aims to create nearly 18,000 new homes in the next 10 years.
This On Location event will hear about the key developments taking place, exploring issues such as housing delivery, new infrastructure and placemaking.
The afternoon session will bring together local stakeholders including council representatives, developers, investors and architects to look at the future of Waltham Forest. Presentations will be followed by study tours of key areas and networking drinks.
