The Forum

The Summertown St Margaret’s Neighbourhood Forum came into existence following the Localism Act of 2011. It was initially a response to the likelihood of a major development on the Ewert House/Diamond Place area to the east of the Summertown shops. Recognised by the City Council in 2013 it comprises the electoral wards of Summertown and St Margaret’s (see the map).


It has two main purposes:

1) to provide a meeting place where issue of major significance to the neighbourhood can be discussed;

2) to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan which, when approved by a referendum, will establish principles for the future of the neighbourhood which developers and planners will need to respect.

Its present officers are Shamus Donald (Chair), Henk van Es  (Treasurer), Natasha Robinson (Secretary).

Any resident can become a member of the Forum simply by sending their email address to the Secretary.
