Leader of the Council

Welcome to my web page. My name’s Chris Robbins, and I’m the Leader of Waltham Forest Council.

In a nutshell, I see it as my job to fight Waltham Forest’s corner and make the borough a better place.

This means 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.

The idea of these pages is to help shed some light on my role and explain what I’m doing to make Waltham Forest a better place in which to live, work and study. I hope you find them useful.
