Wednesday, August 14, 2019
The council has lost its legal battle and has been forced to stop publishing its illegal newsletter. The law does not allow councils to publish newsletters more than four times a year. But up until June 10 this year, Waltham Forest Council had been publishing its freesheet Waltham Forest News twice a month. The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 ensures councils are properly held to account and the local newspaper industry is better supported.
