The Community Board members are made up of tenants, leaseholders, the London Borough of Ealing, local Councillors, local professionals, Countryside, Catalyst Housing and L&Q Housing Trust. The group meet every two months to oversee the regeneration of South Acton, consulting on buildings and landscaping designs, updates to the regeneration project and to decide the allocation of available funding for community projects.
Why should you consider being involved with the Community Board?
- To ensure the opinions and views of all residents are taken into account by all the teams involved
- Supporting local projects in agreeing the funding allocations of the Community Chest
- Meet residents who have already moved as part of the regeneration process
- Clarification on regeneration concerns or queries of the community
- Meet with the Acton Gardens staff
Residents are invited to attend and observe Board meetings to get a feel of what we do. All we ask is that you contact Acton Gardens beforehand to book a place.
How to Join the Board?
There are two ways to become officially involved in the Community Board
Casual Vacancies – if a Board member leaves, new members can be co-opted in at the next Board meeting (if they meet the criteria) before the Annual General Meeting (AGM). This means that the co-opted member will be required to stand down at the next general election and seek re-election.
Election – At the AGM residents will be invited to stand for election. Residents will be able to serve a term of three years before standing down or seeking re-election.
Please see ‘vacancies’ below for current opportunity.
There will be an opportunity to join the Board at the Acton Garden Annual General meeting on Monday 4th December 2017. If you are interested in joining the Community Board and making a difference to the regeneration of South Acton, please complete application form and submit to Acton Gardens by Monday 20 November. For further information, please contact Suzanne Keys at email@example.com or by calling 0300 456 9800 ext 7147.
How else can residents get involved with the regeneration?
There will be various opportunities and events throughout the regeneration which will give residents the chance to be involved and have their voices heard. These opportunities will be provided by Acton Gardens as part of the consultation and involvement activity which will be ongoing throughout the development of the new homes.
The design sub-group, the neighbourhood management sub-group and the community board meetings are all are attended by residents and members who represent the interests of residents.
The next Community Board meetings for this year are being held on:
- Monday 11 December 2017
- Monday 19 March 2018
- Monday 18 June 2018
