The Sustainable Communities Act has produced some great results for communities across the country, from protecting Post Offices in Sheffield to seeing money earned from renewable energy spent locally. However many still do not know about it’s potential - government ministers have even described it as ‘Britain’s best kept secret’. We must change this! Please get involved by coming along.

ACTION - please do the following

  1. Please come along to the meeting and please bring others: friends, neighbours, colleagues etc - the more the better!

  1. Please spread the word locally, contact me for copies of the meeting flyer (view it here) to distribute locally. You can reach me on or 020 7239 9053.

Yours sincerely
