Help create great streets in Wanstead

Your StreetYour Street

Redbridge Council is inviting residents and stakeholders in Wanstead to take part in a Streets Commission Focus Group this month.

"As part of the Streets Commission we would like you to tell us how we can work together to make our streets and public spaces safer, cleaner and as community-centred as possible. We would like to capture as many of your ideas and suggestions as possible, with a focus on how we can empower our citizens to create a better place to live," said a council spokesperson.

"Given the council's current budgetary constraints and pressures we need to think about how to do things differently. We know that you are likely to have excellent local knowledge when it comes to understanding and maintaining clean streets, pocket parks, tidy front gardens and community cohesion. For that reason, we are inviting you to be part of the conversation to inform our future strategy, focusing on how we can improve the quality of our streets and public spaces together. If you want to make your voice heard and have any ideas about how we can work together to create better streets in Redbridge, book yourself onto one of the focus group sessions today. Spaces are limited so book your place soon to avoid missing out."

This project was initiated by Councillor Howard, Cabinet Member for Environment and Sustainability, to provide a comprehensive picture of what matters most to the citizens of Redbridge when it comes to creating better streets and public spaces. The work of the Streets Commission will feed into the strategy with the aim to work in partnership with residents and communities to create this vision.

The meeting will take place at Wanstead Library on 21 March from 4pm. For more information and to book a place, click here.
