Waltham Forest News......

For eight years Waltham Forest Council has been fighting a battle over its publication Waltham Forest News.

What Waltham Forest News does not do – contrary to its misleading title – is report the news. It does not tell you about the nine council-owned tower blocks posing a ‘substantial’ fire risk to residents. It does not tell you about the art studios in Leytonstone the council is set to demolish. It does not tell you tell about the tens of millions of pounds the council has invested in fossil fuels despite declaring a ‘climate emergency’. It does not tell you about the fears of Chingford residents about the environmental impact of a new council-backed incinerator. And it does not tell you about an existing pocket park in Leyton the council wants to build homes on.  Click here to read more.
