Area Forum Committee
Our Area Forums are groups of residents who work together to improve their town and surrounding villages through leading on changes – big or small – that can make a huge difference to peoples’ lives. To find out more about our Area Forums, please read the information below.
What is an Area Forum Committee?
There are three Area Forums Committees: Braintree, Witham and Halstead. Being a member of a Forum Committee gives you a voice on issues which affect your communities. Each Committee has an opportunity to identify improvements needed in your local area – with other residents’ input – and they have a budget to enable these improvements to happen.
They can include:
- Parking projects
- New benches
- New bins
- Clearer signage
- Improvements to lighting.
Open meetings are held in our communities each year, which provide an opportunity for residents to come along and suggest future projects.
The next open meetings are:
- Braintree – 5 July 2017, 7-9pm at Greenfields House, Braintree.
- Witham – to be arranged.
- Halstead – to be arranged.
As a Forum Committee Member, you can also be involved in other activities. These include:
- A residents’ social afternoon at Greenfields House, Braintree, every third Thursday of the month
- Providing support to Community Voices
- Monitoring our Local Offers.
