Leader of the Council

My name is Cllr Chris Robbins and I am the Leader of Waltham Forest Council. Thank you for visiting my web page. 

I have been elected to represent Waltham Forest for a third term and it is my job to continue to help make this borough a better place to live, work and study.
My work involves leading on policy decisions, working alongside our partners in the police and health sector and liaising directly with central government to get a better deal for our residents and our borough. 
I look forward to working with my Cabinet colleagues, councillors and the Waltham Forest community to improve quality of life for all our residents over the next four years.  
It looks set to be an exciting time with projects such as the opening of the cinema complex in Walthamstow, the implementation of the Mini-Holland programme and a continued focus on our high streets and public realm.
These pages aim to shed some light on my role and keep you updated on what I am doing to make Waltham Forest a better place. I hope you find them useful.
