Southwark's first Multi-Ward Area Forum Meeting will be taking place this month. The South Area includes these wards: Champion Hill, Dulwich Hill, Dulwich Wood, Dulwich Village and Goose Green. Community Councils have now been replaced with the Empowering Communities Programme which you can read more about below.
Southwark Council has unveiled a new approach to community involvement to replace Community Councils. The resulting new Empowering Communities Programme will take place three times in 2019-20, and twice a year thereafter, for funding project presentations and announcing decisions.
Each area will have a community champion, (one of the Councillors), who will Chair the area forums, ensuring that these larger meetings operate effectively.
Funding programmes information, process, and announcement of decisions; including Cleaner Greener Safer, Neighbourhoods Fund, Democracy Fund, Devolved Highways Budget, etc. will be a main function of the multi-ward meetings.
The first of these Area Forum meetings for South Area will be:
7pm on Monday 24th June
Christchurch, 263 Barry Rd, Dulwich, SE22 0JT
