About this Event

Waltham Forest borough councillor Clyde Loakes speaks on Implementing Liveability.

Cllr Loakes is Deputy Leader of the Waltham Forest Borough Council. He will be speaking about the experience of Waltham Forest in implementing Britain’s first comprehensive low-traffic neighbourhood scheme. The scheme is part of a larger set of liveability improvements called Enjoy Waltham Forest. This is the implementation of the Mini Holland funds provided by Transport for London.

Mini Holland funds were available to any outer-London borough that was willing to implement a swathe of liveability improvements, of which low-traffic neighbourhoods were a key component. Eighteen bid for the funds. Three bids were accepted, and only Waltham Forest has delivered the ambitious programmes attached to them.

Waltham Forest has been feted for this programme, receiving over one hundred delegations from across the UK (and beyond) and winning a number of awards.
