2019: Walthamstow's exciting year ahead


2018 has been quite a year for Walthamstow. Towards the end of May 2018 Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London announced that here will be a £15million revamp for Walthamstow Central Tube Station. The funding from TFL's Growth Funding Scheme is conditional on the basis that the Walthamstow Mall redevelopment (involving £200million) will be approved. Mr Kahn has been in talks with the council, the Greater London Authority and Transport for London.


We recently covered all the plans for redevelopment in E17 that are in the pipeline. You can read a brief summary about the exciting brand new developments that are underway including; Juniper House, Feature17, Walthamstow Gateway, Essex Brewery and The Mall.


2019 will be a big one for Walthamstow as it has been dubbed London's first borough of culture. £1.35 million has been awarded and local artists such as Zarah Hussain and Talvin Singh are aspiring to make E17's mark on the map of London with their exciting projects and collaborations. A year's worth of events will be announced soon so watch this space. Local shopping centre The Mall Walthamstow will be the first headline and presenting partner of the opening event 'Welcome to the Forest'. The event will take place 11 to 13 January 2019, offering locals and people across London three days worth of celebration. The Mall Walthamstow proposes to use its information desk as the London Borough of Culture hub for information about the various events.
