Get down to Hackbridge Community Forum 8.03.10
Hackbridge residents are invited to the next Community Forum meeting on Thursday 18 March to get the latest on plans to transform the suburb into a model of sustainable living.
Up for discussion are the annual Hackbridge festival, schemes to promote healthy, locally grown food and wider plans to turn the area into the UK's greenest suburb. Representatives from Thames Water will also attend to answer residents' questions on issues in Hackbridge.
The Forum meets regularly to update the community on progress and seek ideas from the community on future activities.
The free event takes place from 7 to 9pm at Hackbridge Primary School, Hackbridge Road, with free soup and refreshments provided.
Cllr John Drage is the Executive Member for Resources on Sutton Council and will chair the Forum. He said:
"With a major planning application now submitted for the Felnex site and work underway on a low carbon zone, healthy food programme and more, the Hackbridge Project is really gathering pace.
"We want local residents to drive the project forward and these regular forum meetings are a great way for people to find out what is happening and give us their views.
"Please come along next Thursday and play a part in the biggest, most ambitious project ever seen in Sutton – one that is setting the national standard for tackling the climate change challenge."
