News from Jennette Arnold OBE: Walthamstow's Night Time Enterprise Zone
In response to the Mayor’s announcement today that Walthamstow High Street will become London’s first Night Time Enterprise Zone, local London Assembly Member, Jennette Arnold OBE AM, said:
“Following on from being named the first ever London Borough of Culture, this is yet more fantastic news for our borough.
“This pilot will allow Walthamstow to tap into the capital’s vibrant and lucrative night-time economy, creating vital employment opportunities in the borough, whilst boosting local small businesses and the cultural life of Walthamstow High Street.
“This also complements the work of the council to extend the opening hours of the Mall, which recently celebrated the reopening of its doors after the devastating fire that took place in July”.
