The meeting will be at Chapel End Junior School, and you can download the agenda here: It would be great to see as many residents as possible there!


A member points out that the Community Council meeting on the 28 Jan coincides (coincidence?) with a NLWP consultation.

Dear all

In case you haven’t seen the latest copy of WFM, there will be a public workshop at EduAction Conference Centre, Queens Road, E17 between 6.30pm and 8.30pm on Monday 28th January about the North London Waste Plan. The purpose of the workshop is to “have your say and find out more” about the North London Waste Plan. Some of you may have seen that Waltham Forest is earmarked for 3 out of 6 waste disposal sites so it should be interesting to go along and find out more about what’s happening with that.

For more info go to or to register for a workshop email

I’m sure it is no coincidence (!), but the Walthamstow West Community Council meeting is also being held on the same evening – Monday 28th January at 7.15pm at the Chapel End Junior School, Roberts Road, E17 4LS.


We should probably split up and attend both. Email to say which of the two meetings, the Community Council or the NLWP consultation, you’d be able to attend.

It would be great if as many people as possible went along to the next Community Council meeting. It’s a great opportunity to raise our concerns about the Willowfield School proposals, and the development at BHL2.

All meetings start at 7.30pm. Refreshments served from 7.15pm.

You can see agendas and minutes here. When the council gets round to posting them. Otherwise, contact:

If you haven’t seen it already, the Walthamstow Guardian has a piece in it about the Council’s plans to build a new Willowfield School on the playing fields behind Edward Road. A couple of BAG members got themselves quoted, which is nice!

Read the article here.

Hi all,

Since the Council has put the rebuilding of Willowfield School on green belt land back on the agenda, we thought that a reminder of the actual flood risk would be a good idea.

Remember, the Council’s argument is based on the idea that the Douglas Eyre Playing Fields are not as much at risk of flood as had been previously thought; this view is based on historical records, despite warnings from various agencies that flood risk assessments should be revised upwards to take global warming into account.

Take a look at the Environment Agency’s flood map, here.
