Following the petition by 1600 local residents to create a Community Council for Queen’s Park, Westminster Council will shortly be launching a consultation across Westminster. They wont be able to contact everyone however. To make sure your voice is heard check out Westminster Council’s webpage for further details. The proposal is being discussed at a full meeting of Westminster Council on Wednesday, the briefing for which you can find here.
If you are interested in starting a Community Council but don’t live in Queen’s Park you can find lots of information on the National Association of Local Councils website including the helpful ‘Power to the People’ information pack. There is an informal networking session for communities interested in creating a Community Council for their area on the 29th November at Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre on the Southbank – see here for more info.
