Who we are

John Walsh and Fred Wigg Towers - The Vision

Welcome to the John Walsh and Fred Wigg Tower Improvement Programme webpage.

As part of the Councils commitment to make Waltham Forest a better place to live we want to improve your estate and want you to be involved in the process.

John Walsh and Fred Wigg Towers have been identified as a priority for improvement. The Council plans to invest in the estate to improve the area in consultation with local people. The people living on the estate have a key role to play in creating the plans that will make the estate a better place to live. By working with the local community the Council will look at the different ways that the estate can be improved.

Key points

We know that residents on the estate want to see their estate improved and that is why we will be investing in the area.

With residents help we want to transform the estate to make it a better place for residents to live, ensuring that all of the homes are of a good quality, homes are safe and secure and the surrounding area is upgraded.

In the meantime we will be working hard with Waltham Forest Housing to make sure that any current issues highlighted by residents are assessed and dealt with where possible.
