The Covent Garden Business Forum meetings are for the benefit of local businesses and interested organisations. They are ideal to keep up-to-date with what is happening in the area, to know how your business may be impacted on by projects and to be kept appraised of opportunities which may benefit you and your staff.
Projects introduced to local businesses at previous meetings include London Underground’s upgrade of Covent Garden station and Thames Water’s Victorian Mains Replacement programme. The Metropolitan Police (via Westminster and Camden’s respective Safer Neighbourhood Teams) have not only kept us up-to-date with their work, they have also been able to forge relationships with many local businesses.
Camden’s infamous plan to put up a needle exchange facility within Tottenham Court Road underground station was withdrawn after successful representation and the concerted efforts of the Forum in 2006. This outcome alone demonstrates the key role that the Forum has to play in the local community as it is effective in influencing decisions by presenting a united response from the local businesses and stakeholders.
