Chiswick Area Forum

The Chiswick Area Forum usually meets four times a year and brings together all nine councillors in the three Hounslow Chiswick and Gunnersbury wards: Chiswick Gunnersbury ward, Chiswick Homefields ward and Chiswick Riverside ward.  It is a council group where current issues are raised in front of residents with an open forum for residents to raise questions directly with their councillors.  Some meetings were cancelled during the pandemic.  

This year(May 2023 to May 2024) its chairman is Cllr Gabriella Giles of Chiswick Riverside ward.

From May 2022 to May 2023 its chairman was Turnham Green/Chiswick Gunnersbury ward councillor Ron Mushiso.

The chairman for the previous year (May 2021 to May 2022) was Turnham Green/Chiswick Gunnersbury ward councillor Joanna Biddolph who took advantage of a relaxation in its format to shift the agenda.  It had three main sections: Chiswick Community Matters, Chiswick Future and the Open Forum. The Chiswick Community matters section was specifically for Chiswick's voluntary organisations, charities and businesses to tell us (councillors, residents and businesses) what they do, what their challenges are and how the council, and we councillors, could help; there was time for questions, of course. The Chiswick Future section looked at important issues for Chiswick, and included presentations from specialists followed by questions. The open forum remained the same - a chance for residents and business ratepayers to raise policy concerns and ask questions of councillors.   

Some local organisations and residents attend regularly; others come when the agenda includes subjects they are especially interested in. Please do come along and take part.
