An invitation to participate in a ‘local conversation’ about Brentford
Brentford Voice wants residents to freely express their views on the future of the region
Brentford Voice invites local residents to join an informal virtual meeting “Our Local Conversation” which will allow people to freely express their views on the future of the region.
Local councilors or Hounslow council agents will not attend the meeting.
Brentford Voice says you will have ample opportunity to raise issues and questions during the meeting. However, it would be very helpful if you let him know in advance of any comments or questions on matters that may be of particular importance to you. To do this, send an e-mail, before June 9, to: [email protected]
Even if you don’t have any questions in advance, it would be helpful when planning the meeting to let Brentford Voice know if you would like to attend.
Your questions and comments can relate to any imaginable issue related to Brentford, but there are many specific issues that can fall into one or more of these areas:
Arts and culture; Transport; Planning; Housing; Open spaces and greening; Heritage; Climate change; Air pollution; and on the Brentford waterfront.
LB Hounslow is currently preparing a ‘Vision for Brentford Town Center’ and a character and design study both of which are of great importance to Brentford, says Brentford Voice and believes our local conversation should be an important contribution. to these studies.
On June 24, the Hounslow Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Hounslow Council, is hosting a conference on Hounslow Regeneration and Recovery. This will include presentations from the Hounslow Housing, Planning and Communities Director and developers, including the Berkeley and Ballymore Group. To the knowledge of Brentford Voice, no representative of the community has been invited to this conference. However, he plans to ensure that delegates are informed of the findings of our local conversation.
