A new project will attempt to breathe new life into 20 “forgotten” sites across Waltham Forest.

Artists, designers and architects have been commissioned to reinvigorate public spaces across the borough as part of Waltham Forest Council’s Making Places scheme.

The first 10 projects are set to go into production this spring.

Projects include the planting of a wildflower meadow in Linear Park, Leyton, by artist Lucy Harrison and an outdoor performance space in Low Hall, Walthamstow.

A pavilion is also planned in Chingford’s Ridgeway Park, as well as an eight-metre-long table designed for community events and gatherings in Albert Crescent, Chingford Mount.

Cllr Clare Coghill, Leader of Waltham Forest Council, said: “Waltham Forest is a borough for makers and a borough for radicals, all built around the key element of fellowship.

Working together, we can create wonderful pieces of community art that bring joy and happiness to residents and visitors alike.

“All of these superb commissions will brighten up areas of Waltham Forest nominated by our residents – where they wanted change we delivered it.”

Making Places offered creative people from across the UK the chance to nominate and idea to transform sites nominated by Waltham Forest residents.
