Thank you to everyone who attended the AGM on 8th July.
We received an update on the Neighbourhood Plan with the reminder that the referendum on the plan is fixed for September 2nd and all residents and business owners in the FitzWest area get a vote.
Application forms for postal votes can be downloaded here and the deadline for registering for a postal vote is August 17th :

There were two other short presentations – one about greening ideas for the area and another one by Jace Tyrell from the New West End Company about how businesses are thriving and surviving post-pandemic.
There were also questions and contributions from members which led to interesting discussions and it was apparent how committed everyone is to making Fitzrovia a great place to live and work.
