Hounslow Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Equalities, Councillor Shivraj Grewal, said: “It has been standing room only at our new style area forums over the last year. The revised format seems to have really captured the imagination of our residents and reflects a radical overhaul of the way we engage with our community.  I urge anyone who has yet to experience one to get involved and have their say.”
