Community Ward Forums

Community Ward Forums:

All 20 wards in Waltham Forest should hold community forums at least 3 times a year, organised by the local Councillors. Some wards may choose to hold these meetings together with another adjacent ward.

Community forums are an opportunity for local people to get together, meet their ward councillors and safer neighbourhood teams and discuss important issues affecting their area. The meetings are open to individual residents, community groups and business representatives who want to help shape and improve their neighbourhood.

The Council allocates £10,000 to each ward to spend annually on local initiatives proposed by residents and organisations in the ward. One ward forum meeting each year will discuss how this money will be distributed between the suggested ideas, with ward Councillors having the final say.

Dates and venues for community ward forums are publicised in Waltham Forest News and on the Council’s website. Follow the link below to find the date of the next ward forum in your area:
