Charlton Neighbourhood Forum: Help shape your local area this Saturday

The neighbourhood forum has its annual general meeting on Saturday

It’s the special annual general meeting of the Charlton Neighbourhood Forum this Saturday. The forum is hoping to put together a neighbourhood plan for the SE7 area that must be taken into account when developers apply to build on sites – its chair Clare Loops wrote for us last year about why you should take an interest.

If the group can get a plan together, then this will be a hugely important step for the area – so if you’ve got an interest in the future of the area, it’s worth heading along. Too often, this kind of group gets packed out with well-off homeowners objecting to schemes that will chip away at housing waiting lists, so if you’re someone that feels shut out of these kinds of decisions, now’s the time to go along and have your say, and think about joining its committee.

The event is in the Long Gallery on the first floor of Charlton House on Saturday 27 November at 11am. For more details, see the Charlton Neighbourhood Forum website.
