The TMSTH Area Forum was setup for YOU, the local residents to air views, raise issues and attend meetings about the development of the area in which you live.

The area forum has a committee of local residents who meet on a regular basis.

If you would like to become a committee member e-mail: tmsthareaforum@yahoo.com.

The committee members organise public meetings which are currently held 3 times a year and these meetings give you the opportunity to discuss any local issues and listen to invited speakers. However, if you are unable to attend the meetings, you can still contact us to raise any concerns you may have.

The "Big Society!"

Through the Localism Bill, the Government plans to give communities more power to control their own environment.

The Throop, Muscliff, Strouden, Townsend and Holdenhurst Area Forum is a voluntary, non- political, non-partisan platform for local people to have their say.

> TMSTH Area Forum will maintain strong links with local Councillors, Council Departments and Officers, Member of Parliament and representatives of other organisations, to ensure a two way flow of information.

> TMSTH Area Forum will work to improve links with public sector partners, e.g. Police and Safer Neighbourhood teams, Fire and Ambulance Service and to promote public service information.
