St Johns' Wood Neighbourhood Forum
The Society was instrumental in the designation of the St. John’s Wood Neighbourhood Area and the creation of a Neighbourhood Forum under the Localism Act 2011. We helped pull together the key people from residents, businesses, civic organisations and other stakeholders of St. John’s Wood to take the Forum forward.
As the organisation with the planning expertise and long-term knowledge of the area, the Society will work with the Forum to help develop the Neighbourhood Plan which will need to be endorsed by all Forum members. This Plan will be used by the Society's Planning Committee when reviewing planning applications as it will sit alongside the current national planning guidance, the Mayor's London Plan and the Westminster City Plan.
NOTE: UNTIL THE NEW WESTMINSTER CITY PLAN IS ADOPTED IN EARLY 2020, WE ARE UNABLE TO DEVELOP OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN. THE NEIGHBOURHOOD FORUM WILL RECONVENE AT THAT TIME.
