Here's some more information about the Forum's Annual General Meeting, which will be held on Monday 12th March at 7pm, at Burgh House, New End Square, NW3 1LT.
We will brief you on the latest news about the Hampstead Neighbourhood Plan, which has just been scrutinised by an independent examiner. The next stage is for the Plan to be submitted to public referendum.
Stephen Taylor will give a short presentation on how the Neighbourhood Plan will help to improve air quality in our area. In addition, we will update you on the work the Forum has been doing on local projects that could be funded by proceeds of the Community Infrastructure Levy, a tax on developers. Several projects have been completed.
The meeting will elect a committee for the next year. The nominees are as follows: Janine Griffis, David Castle, Stephen Taylor, Alex Nicoll, Linda Chung, Oliver Froment, Caroline Goldsack, Vicki Harding, Andrew Haslam-Jones, Nicola Sinclair, Clyde Whittaker and Tom Brent. Councillors for the wards covered by the Forum area are committee members ex officio. Brief biographies of existing elected members can be found by clicking here.
Tom Brent is a new nominee. He has lived much of his life around Hampstead and has a detailed knowledge of the area. He was a longstanding committee member of the South End Green Association, representing it on the Hampstead Conservation Area Advisory Committee, which he co-chaired for four years. Tom graduated as an environmental designer from City of Guilds and Hornsey Colleges of Art, and he built-up a busy design and architectural practice that finally evolved into a specialist property consultancy. Tom also designed and implemented his own projects. Almost retired, he now is trying to sculpt.
