About Leyton Town Centre
We have four town centre schemes, one of which is Leyton. The Enjoy Waltham Forest programme has better connected Leyton, Leytonstone, Chingford and Highams Park to each other making it easier for people to walk and cycle for local journeys with new and improved walking and cycling routes.
The town centre schemes have also improved the look and feel of these key areas whilst linking in with the four Village schemes in Walthamstow, making them more enjoyable places, boosting business for our local economy and giving our residents a sense of pride in their borough.
The Leyton Town Centre scheme area includes over 11,000 addresses and people walk and cycle through it to get to Leyton Underground Station, Leyton Midland Road Rail Station, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Westfield shopping centre as well as local shops and amenities.
We’ve made a range of improvements to the area, from reducing the amount of non-local traffic using local streets where residents live, to better walking and cycling routes to help people get around more easily and safely if they choose to walk or cycle. We’ve also been investing in new public spaces and improving how the area looks, with new plants and greenery, to encourage more people to spend their time in the area.
