The Stanford Forum meetings are now being held on the 2nd Monday of every other month at a new venue. The new meeting place is The Forum Base Church Hill, Stanford le Hope (top of Church Hill) Start time remains the same 19.30 finish 21.15.
The Stanford Forum are the Council recognised Forum for Stanford le Hope, if you have a idea that might improve our neighbourhood, or would like to get involved in some of our projects, please come along to one of our open meetings.
The Stanford Forum is the Council recognised Forum for the area. It will raise local issues at the highest level within the Council and at the same time ensure that if decisions taken elsewhere in the Borough have an effect on Stanford le Hope we are consulted on them.
Representatives of the Forums meet every 3 months to discuss issues affecting all the Forums in Thurrock. The Thurrock Association of Forums (TAF) will then make representations to Thurrock Council regarding common issues.
To encourage residents from all ages and backgrounds to become active in the community, so that when the Stanford Forum raises issues on the communities behalf we can show that we are representative of our area.
The Stanford Forum has been running for over 10 years and during this time have made representations to numerous planning applications, at times appearing at Planning Inquiries. We have been running the Stanford Music Festival since it began over 10 years ago, we also secured the recent tidy up of the old Barclay’s Bank building in the town centre.
