Juniper House was used as Council offices until March 2018, when staff transferred to the Town Hall Campus as part of the efficiency savings being made by the London Borough of Waltham Forest. The Council has identified the potential for the site to be redeveloped for a residential-led mixed-use development to help provide much-needed new homes and facilities for local people.

Objectives for this consultation

  • Inform the community about the proposals to redevelop Juniper House
  • Show the changes made to the designs since the first round of public consultation in July 2018
  • Seek feedback and local knowledge to help us further develop our proposals before we submit a planning application at the end of November


London Borough of Waltham Forest

Walthamstow is changing. Walthamstow Central underground station is receiving a £15m upgrade, the Enjoy Waltham Forest programme
is enhancing local roads, and public spaces are being improved. Waltham Forest Council is taking the lead in planning for improving the town centre, and redeveloping this empty former Council office will help revitalise this key location. The Council is proposing the redevelopment as part of its wider regeneration programme, and has appointed the following team to create an aspirational design for the site, based on their established track record of delivering comparable schemes to a high standard.
