Your Area Forums

Hounslow Council is putting our communities at the heart of everything we do and Area Forums are helping us to transform how we listen to, and work with, our local communities.

There are four Area Forums in the London Borough of Hounslow. They are held six times a year with the aim of bringing together residents, Councillors, officers from across the Council and local community groups and businesses so that residents can participate in the decisions that most affect them and get a better understanding of the Council’s contribution and support for their neighbourhood.

Residents can use the Area Forums to have their say on issues that involve their local area by engaging directly with their ward Councillors and developing a local partnership based on common goals and a commitment to working together to achieve them.

  • The Area Forums provide an opportunity to comment on most aspects of Council policy
  • The meetings monitor, scrutinise and review services delivered by the Council and also other agencies in the area, such as the Health Authority and the police.
  • The Area Forums also have the power to call-in planning applications to decide whether they will be determined by the Planning Committee, or officers under delegated powers.
