Town Forum Information

Town Forums give you an opportunity to have your say on local issues that are important to you. The new town-based forums will share up to £2 million to be raised from the Community Infrastructure Levy CIL which is raised from developers when permission is given for planning applications. These will be spent on facilitating community initiatives and microfinancing.

Town Councillors

Local Councillors are elected by the community to decide how the council should carry out its various activities.

They represent public interest as well as individuals living within the ward in which he or she has been elected to serve a term of office.

There are 12 councillors elected in Acton’s four wards of East Acton, North Acton, Southfield and South Acton.

Member of Parliament

MPs often hold a ‘surgery’ in their office, where local people can come along to discuss any matters that concern them.

MPs also attend functions, visit schools and businesses and generally try to meet as many people as possible. This gives MPs further insight and context into issues they may discuss when they return to Westminster.

Acton is within the Ealing Central and Acton constituency, one of three parliamentary constituencies in the borough.
