The next meeting of the Isleworth and Brentford Area Forum promises to be a busy one with a varied agenda.

The public are welcome to attend the meeting at Brentford Free Church at 7.30pm on Thursday, 21 October in which local ward councillors will hear a number of reports. The full agenda can be found by clicking here.

The meeting will hear a Local Policing update from Sgt Jim Cope including detailed summaries of the ward policing teams in Isleworth, Osterley and Brentford.

This will be followed by the Open Forum which is an opportunity for members of the public to address the meeting on general issues relating to the agenda and other issues not on the agenda. Residents are asked to submit any questions/ issues to the Open Forum in writing at least one full working day before the meeting. The earlier your submission is received, the greater the chance of a response being available in time for the meeting.

There will be then an update on flooding in the area including a review of the causes of flash flooding that took place earlier this year.

Rob Heslop of Hounslow Council will brief the meeting on transport changes including the scheduling changes planned at local stations by South Western Railway and the progress on getting step-free access for Isleworth station.

Martin Case, the Chair of Brentford Voice, will be giving a presentation on the work of the organisation which has recently subsumed the Brentford Community Council.

Michelle Hutchinson from the council will be giving a briefing on grant funding opportunities in the borough.

Those wishing to address the Area Forum on any items for decision listed on the agenda should contact the Committee Administrator, Kay Duffy, on 020 8583 2067 with details of the proposed submission as soon as practicable and no later than two working days before the meeting. The Chair will decide whether to grant the request to speak. The Area Forum will consider submissions on up to 3 items per meeting. Written submissions should be made to the Committee Administrator no later than 4pm on the day of the meeting.

The Brentford Free Church on Boston Manor Road operates a number of Covid safe policies including asking attendees to sanitise their hands on arrival, wear masks when moving around the building and to scan their NHS QR code. Doors and windows will be kept open for ventilation.

The meeting will not be livestreamed but it will be recorded and published to the Council's YouTube channel after the meeting has concluded.

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.

If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

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

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.
