Practical Results of the Localism Act 2011: Highgate now has a Neighbourhood Forum.

The Localism Act 2011 includes powers to allow local people to have more of a say in how their area develops in the future. It enables the formation of Neighbourhood Forums and a Forum can make a Neighbourhood Plan which, subject to examination by an independent examiner for conformity to Local Development Plans, becomes part of the statutory planning framework for the area.

The inaugural meeting coincides with a #knittingtuesday. Coincidence? I THiNK NOT!
