Ealing and Northfield

Comments from WEN

I see that Eric Leach of West Ealing Neighbours is trying to connect the recent Northfield Ward Forum (see previous posting) with ideas that have been promoted by by the Neighbourhood Governance specialist scrutiny panel.

Eric is just plain wrong. In Northfield I think that we have gone some way in proving that councillors can just get on with talking (engaging in the jargon) with residents without the paraphernalia of ward budgets and officer support.

One reply on “Comments from WEN”

To be fair to me, I did suggest that you re-name the recent useful Northfield Councillor/Council Officer/faith,resident, business, Police group meeting as anything but a ‘Ward Forum’. This was so it would not become confused with the current also useful Neighbourhood Governance Scutiny proposal for Ward Forums with delegated budgets.

Eric Leach,
Vice-Chair WEN
