About Blackhorse Village

Blackhorse Village is one of a series of residential areas in the borough to receive Mini-Holland funding to create places that are great to live, work and travel around. For the purpose of the Mini-Holland Programme this scheme has been named 'Blackhorse Village'.

Residential streets in the Blackhorse Road area of Walthamstow will become part of the Mini-Holland villages scheme. A key feature of the Mini-Holland Programme is the concept of ‘villigisation’ which involves returning the streets to local people and making the streets safer, quieter and more enjoyable.

The Blackhorse Village is the area framed by Forest Road, Hoe Street, Selbourne Road and Blackhorse Road, and consists of over 4700 residents and 490 commercial properties. The area is popular with people who walk and cycle accessing Blackhorse Road Station, Walthamstow Central, St James Street Station, and Walthamstow Market and shopping centre.

The Blackhorse Village scheme aims to:

  • Improve the look, feel and safety of Blackhorse Village for all road users
  • Encourage more residents and visitors to walk and cycle in the area
  • Improve access to local amenities.
