The Highams Park Forum will close at the end of 2019

 

Why is the Forum closing?

When The Forum was created in 2001 it was the only Highams Park wide residents' organisation and it did its best, with a very small membership, to satisfy numerous needs and had a great deal of success.  In 2013 the Forum helped create The Highams Park Planning Group (HPPG) to create a plan for the area.  This resonated with residents and the Group soon had a huge membership (currently well over 1000).  The scale of the HPPG and the enthusiasm of its membership has allowed it to take on many major projects.  Many Forum members are already actively involved with the HPPG.

 

Most of the Forum's functions are now duplicated by the HPPG and those that are not can be addressed within it.  As a result the active members of the Forum felt that it would be better to transfer their efforts to within the HPPG and close the Forum as a separate organisation.

 

What will happen after the Forum closes?

1.    The HPPG will set up regular public meetings with a format designed to appeal to a wider age group than currently attend Forum meetings. The proposed dates of these meetings can be seen in the minutes of the 21st October 2019 Forum meeting displayed on this site.

2.    The Forum's website will be mothballed within the HPPG's web host.  When the domain registration for "www.highamsparkforum.co.uk" expires, the site will still be accessible via the menus of the Highams Park Portal (www.highamspark.london).  The portal is an overarching website for Highams Park and was requested by residents consulted during the creation of The Highams Park Plan.

3.    The "contact us" page of the Forum's website will be amended to direct visitors to the Highams Park Portal contact email address.
