North Chingford

North Chingford is a vibrant town centre which forms a gateway to the enchanting and ancient Epping Forest. The area is well-connected with good public transport links with the Overground line that runs to Walthamstow, Wood Street, Hackney and on to Liverpool Street, as well as buses that run to Essex and Hertfordshire.

Chingford Mount

Chingford Mount is a vibrant and varied town centre with a unique history and heritage, and a good shopping and hospitality offer. 

In March 2023, Waltham Forest was awarded £8.4m of Levelling Up Funds for Chingford Mount and Highams Park, to improve the main public spaces with planting, lighting, wayfinding and invest in three parks in the area, Memorial Park, Chase Lane Park and Rolls Park to provide new sports, leisure and play facilities as well as new flood mitigation and planting. 

The Council have carried out two phases of public engagement on the Chingford Mount Area Framework. This has helped us to develop an Area Framework which sets out the principles and aspirations of the local community and the development and investment opportunities that will help us to deliver on these objectives. 

The Chingford Mount Framework creates a vision for the area over the next 15 years to promote regeneration and encourage investment to secure the long-term success of the town centre. A key element of this is to enhance the public space at Albert Crescent to better connect it to the high street and reaffirm it as the heart of Chingford Mount. 

See more about the Chingford Mount Framework on the Commonplace Platform.

In 2021, we turned a shop front into a community space called 228 Chingford Mount which hosts a programme of small businesses, community events, activities for young people and exhibitions and local engagement sessions.
