Budding businessmen and women are being urged to turn their ideas into reality as Waltham Forest Council opens applications for the next round of ‘pop-up’ shops.

Social enterprises, business owners, artists or anyone who wants a taste of the high street can set up shop for two to six weeks without paying any rents or rates as a part of the scheme.

Earlier this year, the shop in Hoe Street, Walthamstow was home to a plant shop, a vintage clothing store, a rug retailer and many more.

This year, for the first time, space will also be available open in Church Road, Chingford.
