West Bridgford Local Area Forum
A venue for groups and organisations based in West Bridgford to meet their local Borough and County Councillors, to share ideas and discuss matters affecting the whole of the community.
Any resident of West Bridgford is welcome to attend.

Meetings are held in Committee Room B at County Hall, Loughborough Road, NG2 7QP
on the third Monday of every other month; full list of dates below.

The next will be our Annual General Meeting, on 18th June 2018 at 7.00 pm.

OUR AIMS: To improve and sustain the quality of life of all those who live and work in and West Bridgford by providing a forum for the presentation, discussion and conclusion of issues affecting the community.

The forum has been active for many years and welcomes local residents and representatives from groups in the West Bridgford area to join us in our bi-monthly meetings.

We discuss on-going issues of interest to the local community and invite speakers to give us updates. Our sub group for Traffic and Transport works together and also holds separate meetings as highways are always in the limelight.
