Waltham Forest Town Hall Campus Regeneration

Last month we were contacted regarding the redevelopment on the Waltham Forest Town Hall campus by Poplar HARCA, who are working on the bid by the developer Countryside.

It’s still at an early stage and hasn’t yet reached planning, however we felt this was a good opportunity to set out what we want to see at this important site in the middle of the borough.

Dan went to meet them and discussed the bid and their ideas.

Following that meeting we wrote a letter to record our hopes for this site, which we also shared with the council. The letter is attached. We understand that HARCA will include this letter in their bid to show they’ve liaised with local community groups.

It’s important to note that, as we say in the letter, we’re happy to work with any of the developers working on this site or elsewhere in the borough. So if you’re a developer please get in touch!

    Currently there is no real cycle access from Forest Road, you have to cycle over the pedestrian route, and down the pavement. A drop kerb or ramp near the top would be useful at least.
    Likewise a good route through to Farnan Avenue.
    In the longer term a gravel path across Chestnuts field to the gate, and an all weather route to the Track & Pool would help. (I know these would not be 24 hour.)
    Err… and for access to Lloyd Park – cycle contraflow on Dudley, with the Chingford Road Zebra upgraded to a Tiger.
