Walthamstow Town Centre Walthamstow, London

Walthamstow Town Centre Walthamstow, London

The London Borough of Waltham Forest urgently needed to update its plan for Walthamstow town centre to take account of the changing economic climate and to create the policy framework to respond to rapidly emerging development on large, pivotal site at the crossroads of Walthamstow High Street and Hoe Street.

Client: London Borough of Waltham Forest
Project Status: Completed

Gort Scott worked alongside award-winning masterplanners, Maccreanor Lavington, to make a proposal that included eight key objectives to underpin future development in the town centre.  The masterplan also proposes a series of incremental changes for five interconnected spaces that together make up the town centre.  Critically, these changes can occur independently each other as funding and development opportunities arise, creating a masterplan that is a flexible framework, rather than an holistic vision.

Gort Scott was heavily involved in public and stakeholder engagement, which included a blog site to disperse information, public consultation in the Town Square, and a final event in the Library.

This commission provided the evidence base for an updated Area Action Plan (AAP) and a formal Development Plan Document which will provide the statutory basis for Council action to achieve regeneration, and not just redevelopment, of this important town centre area.
