The agenda of the next meeting of the Chiswick Area Forum is dominated by issues related to the environment.

Members of the public are welcome to attend at Chiswick Town Hall on Tuesday 12 September when there will be an opportunity to follow proceedings as well as address questions to local councillors and council officers.

The meeting will discuss the latest stage of Hounslow Council’s Flood Risk Management Strategy with climate change forcing a reconsideration of earlier assumptions about the risk to the area.

Then there will be a presentation on The Thames Landscape Strategy, which aims to shape the riverside environment from Kingston to Kew.

Following this Hounslow Council officers will give a progress update on the Climate Emergency Action Plan. The council has recently announced that it has managed to achieve an on target reduction in its carbon emissions.

The final item on the agenda will be a discussion of Recycling in Hounslow and then any business which the Chair agrees to accept on grounds of urgency.

Residents are invited to raise any other subjects during the Open Forum.

As with previous meetings, there will be an informal networking event at the venue for an hour before the meeting with stalls from community groups and sandwiches and beverages served.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

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.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. 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.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
