In the latest edition of its newsletter local community action group, Brentford Voice, has detailed how priorities are being assessed for the local area following the pandemic.

These are to be discussed at its next Local Conversation where the Town Centre Vision will be the main item on the agenda.

The group has provisionally booked Brentford Free Church for Tuesday March 8, between 7 – 9pm. If you would like to attend let Brentford Voice know by emailing so it can safely accommodate numbers within current Covid regulations.

It is also encouraging Brentford residents to read and share its newsletter as widely as possible saying, “Clearly this is a lot of information to absorb and we understand that people’s time is precious. However, we feel this important document must be shared by the wider community so we’d ask you to read and please share with your friends and neighbours.

“We do hope that this newsletter provides you with background information to an initiative which will have far reaching ramifications in shaping the future of our town.”

In 2020, the council invited our community to have a say on the future of town centres and high streets in Hounslow. In December 2020, Brentford Voice submitted its own Vision for Brentford, setting out the key issues which it believes will help shape the future for our community and for the generations that follow. It’s Environmental Vision was produced in 2021.

The London Borough of Hounslow have prepared a Vision for Brentford, which incorporates several suggestions from Brentford Voice. The Vision sets out the Council’s approach to the regeneration and economic growth of our town centre.

In the newsletter Brentford Voice details concerns about the council’s plans and what residents can do to influence them. It is particularly concerned about the proportion of Community Infrastructure Levy money which is raised through Brentford developments but is not being spent in the area.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
