Neighbourhood Area and Forum applications

On 10 April 2013 London Borough of Camden approved the designation of the Neighbourhood Area and the Neighbourhood Forum. A public consultation on the Forum and Area applications took place between 8 November and 20 December 2012.

The Forum was re-designated for another 5 years by the Council on 1 June 2018.  The associated consultation took place between 3 March and 16 April 2018.

The 2012 approved application documents can be viewed below. They show the area in which the neighbourhood planning powers apply.

Plan Submission

The Kentish Town Neighbourhood Forum submitted their Neighbourhood Plan to the Council for public consultation in December 2015.  

Submitted documents

All responses had to be submitted by 29 January 2016.

Examination

The Council, with support from the Kentish Town Neighbourhood Forum, appointed Mr Jeremy Edge to hold an independent examination on the Plan. Mr Edge advised the Council that he did not wish to hold a public hearing on the Plan.

The Examiner’s report in March 2016 concluded that, subject to the policy modifications recommended being made, the Plan will meet the Basic Conditions and should proceed to a referendum.

The Council then made a decision on the Examiner's recommendations.

Referendum

A referendum was held on 9 June 2016. The referendum question was: “Do you want the London Borough of Camden to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Kentish Town Neighbourhood Area to help decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?” Of the votes cast, 90.9% supported the Council using the Plan, 8.3% voted against. 0.8% of ballot papers were rejected. The turnout was 13.75%.
