New community forums launched

The council is holding community forums from June 2019, where residents can help shape the future of their local area

The events are based around Kingston's four neighbourhoods - South of the borough, Surbiton, Maldens and Coombe and Kingston Town. There will be four events held in each neighbourhood over the course of the year. The first round of events, starting on 3 June, will focus on developing local Community Plans.

A Community Plan is a shared action plan created in partnership with the community. It outlines residents' ideas, aspirations and priorities to effect change locally. 

Each event will bring residents and community groups together to look at six main topics relevant to the area. We will then use this feedback to start to develop a Community Plan together.

June event details are as follows:

  • 3 June 2019, New Malden United Reformed Church, 7.30 - 9.30pm

  • 10 June 2019, Glenmore House, Surbiton, 7.30 - 9.30pm

  • 20 June 2019, Kingsmeadow Sports Ground, 7.30 - 9.30pm

  • 26 June 2019, Hook Centre, 7.30 - 9.30pm

Residents are welcome to drop in at any time throughout the evening and refreshments will be provided. Register online by filling in our short form. 

These are the first of many opportunities for residents to share their ideas and will be followed by other events and sessions in future.
