Newham and Waltham Forest Liveable Neighbourhoods Resubmission

Background
The London boroughs of Newham and Waltham Forest submitted a joint bid to Transport for London (TfL) last year to deliver a Liveable Neighbourhood scheme in your area. The Liveable Neighbourhoods programme aims to deliver a range of measures to improve walking, cycling and encourage the use of public transport to create healthy and active streets. Walking and cycling improvements to local areas have been proven to help support the local economy, as well as improve the health and well-being of residents in the area, by making the roads safer, quieter and more attractive.

Although TfL said our bid last year was strong, funding was allocated to other projects across London. We have however been encouraged to resubmit our application for funding this year, taking on board some of the improvements and schemes that have been implemented over the last year in and around the area.

Last autumn we invited you to take part in a survey telling us about your issues and suggestions for improving the area, which we used to help support our bid. We re-launched the survey to build on this local data and to capture any new ideas or suggestions.

In March 2020 the Coppermill area was successful in receiving TfL 'Liveable Neighbourhood' funding - a new multi-million pound funding programme which will transform neighbourhoods across the capital into greener, healthier, more attractive public places. The funding for the Coppermill area aims to make the area easier, safer, and more convenient to get around by foot, bike, or public transport.
