Emsworth Residents Forum

Working with the community for the community

Our next meeting

Welcome to

Emsworth Residents Forum

The Emsworth Residents Forum (ERF) was formed from the merger of the Emsworth Residents Association and the Emsworth Forum, with a mission to:

  • Represent the whole town
  • Be a clear voice for Emsworth in challenging times
  • Harness the strengths of the community to get things done.

Emsworth has a rich ecosystem of membership organisations, clubs and voluntary institutions. It has one of the best local newspapers and is the only ward in Havant to prepare and endorse a Neighbourhood Plan.

However, Emsworth’s comparative success and self-reliance mean that it is seen as a low priority for public investment in a borough with pressing regeneration demands and squeezed budgets. To make progress for Emsworth it is necessary to capitalise on the talents of our community and a willingness to organise behind shared objectives.
