Marylebone Forum Open Meeting – 10th October 2016

An Open Meeting of the Marylebone Forum will take place at 7:00 pm on 10th October 2016 at the St. Marylebone Parish Church, 17 Marylebone Road, NW1 5LT.

The purpose of the meeting is to inform you about the progress the Forum Committee has made to date and more importantly to hear from you!  It will provide an opportunity for each sub-committee chair to report on their areas of concern and interest and accomplishments so far as we move to the development of a Neighbourhood Plan. It will also provide an opportunity to engage directly with Committee members and to ask questions about the Forum and Committee progress. It will also give you the chance to consider recommendations to improve the overall function of the Forum Committee and to join the Forum if you have not already done so.

Please come and support your Forum, and encourage others who live or work in the area to do so as well.
