Ferry Lane to Forest Road consultation results

Between 29 February and 20 March this year, we carried out a public consultation on the Ferry Lane to Forest Road (Walthamstow Wetlands) section of Forest Road.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the public consultation. All of the comments have been analysed and considered, and have helped us finalise the design for this section of Forest Road.

The full consultation summary including the results and the Council’s response can be downloaded here, however here’s a summary of some of the key results:

  • In total 121 people responded to the consultation, providing 143 individual comments
  • 61 per cent of respondents were positive towards the proposals, 31 per cent were neutral and 8 per cent were negative
  • The top themes respondents commented on were proposals relating to cycling, pedestrians, traffic and environmental issues.

The plans for the Ferry Lane to Forest Road section have been agreed by the Portfolio Lead for Environment and Director of Neighbourhoods and Commissioning at Waltham Forest Council.

A works plan will be scheduled and regular construction updates will be posted in the construction section. Contractors will be on site from the end of April 2016 to prepare the area.
