Highams Park Forum
A group of local people all interested in the betterment of life in their area.


Following the planned closure of the Forum at the end of 2019 this website is now mothballed. It will not be updated further but remains as an interesting archive and can be browsed as normal. All Forum functions have transferred to the Highams Park Planning Group. Click here for details

Highams Park Lake...
Upper section clogged with years of silt.
The Forum is campaigning for it to be dredged.

13JUN08: New homes rising from the
derelict garages in Handsworth Avenue

  The development follows representations made by The Forum. We were concerned that the secluded nature of the previously dilapidated area attracted criminal activity and presented an unnecessarily foreboding entrance to the footpath to The Avenue.



At any given time, the Forum will be actively taking forward a number of initiatives.
