The forum is open to all borough Residents’ associations and community groups- WERFA is represented. It provides an opportunity to hear direct from senior council officers and councillors about their responsibilities and plans. Attendees can raise questions, offer criticisms and suggest actions. It meets about every two months at the Civic Centre and is on Thursday mornings when the Chair, Cllr Katherine Dunne can fit it in her schedule. Cllr Dunne is Hounslow Council Cabinet member for Communities and Workforce which includes Voluntary Sector and Citizen Engagement. Recent meetings have featured strategies on Waste & Recycling, Customer Experience (and website), Thriving Communities and Engagement, and Policy & Scrutiny. Next time, 10.00am 29 November, the major topic will be Planning. For more info contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
