Brentford Free Church on Boston Manor Road will host the event from 7pm, with a number of seats being made available for members of the public to reserve online so they can use the returning Forum as an opportunity to participate in local matters once more.  


Topics for discussion will include policing, public transport, water and flood management, community organisation Brentford Voice’s ambitions for the town and neighbouring areas and there will also be the usual opportunity for Q+As at during the session where residents can put their questions directly to their councillors. Police Sergeant Jim Cope, Hounslow Council Transport Officer Robert Heslop, and Martin Case and Jim Storrar from the Brentford Voice organisation will be presenting to the panel, as well as councillors from Osterley and Spring Grove, Isleworth, Syon and Brentford Wards.  


For residents who cannot make Area Forums in person, the Council has set out to ensure it is still accessible to everyone, with all sessions being uploaded to the Council’s YouTube channel after the event has ended.  


Councillor Tony Louki, Chair of the Isleworth and Brentford Area Forum, said: “On behalf of the Vice Chair, Councillor Mel Collins, and all Councillors of the Isleworth and Brentford Area Forum I am pleased to invite our residents back to IBAF for the remainder of the municipal year. 


It has been a long time since Councillor Salman Shaheen last presided over one of these and, back in the Chair since relinquishing the Mayoralty in May 2021, I am looking forward to meeting residents and others with interests in our two towns to share and hear about the local issues that most affect their lives.  If you are unable to make the event, the proceedings will be recorded and later posted on the London Borough of Hounslow YouTube channel. Either way, please join us.” 


If residents would like to attend this meeting or submit questions, please contact the Committee Officer by emailing before 4pm on Wednesday 20 October
