Roman Road Bow Neighbourhood Forum - Saturday 15th July 12 noon

THIS SATURDAY at 12 midday is the Annual General Meeting of the Roman Road Bow Neighbourhood Forum at the Bow Idea store (Lab 3). Please come along and show your support, hear what the forum is about and help elect the forum committee.

The last twelve months has been a mixed bag for the forum.

After almost seven years, the Neighbourhood Plan was adopted via a public referendum of Bow residents on the 13th October 2022.The Neighbourhood Plan now sits alongside the London Plan and Tower Hamlet's Local Plan and has to be considered in all planning applications in the forum area.

But recently the Mayor of Tower Hamlets and his cabinet have disappointedly voted to not recognise the forum as they see "quite concerning diversity and equality issues". The forum awaits an official written response from the Mayor and his cabinet formally setting out their reasons.

A recording of the cabinet meeting where the decision was taken can be viewed here. If you fast forward to around 42 minutes in, you can watch the discussion. Oddly the beginning of the recording seems to start mid-sentence unofficially discussing the forum?

The forum is open to ALL demographics, so come along tomorrow and listen to what the forum is about and consider getting further involved. It is about making Bow a better place to live and work.

Date: 15th July
Time: 12 NOON
Location: Bow Idea Store (Lab 3), Gladstone Place, E3 5ES
