Neighbourhood Plan Submission Draft

Redington Frognal Neighbourhood Forum submitted its proposed Neighbourhood Plan to Camden Council.  A period of consultation was undertaken by Camden Council ending on 7th September 2020. All documents are PDFs.

Additionally, the Forum has submitted a document setting out complementary actions which are intended to help to deliver the Neighbourhood Plan.  This does not contain planning policies and would therefore not form a part of the statutory development plan for the area.

Representations

These are the representations received by the Council in response to the submission draft consultation. They were forwarded onto the examiner to consider.

What happens next?

The Council is required to consider the Examiner's recommendations and publish a 'Decision Statement'.  The Plan can then proceed to a referendum giving the community the final say on whether the Plan is to be used in determining planning applications in the designated neighbourhood area. We will publish the date of the referendum on this webpage once it has been confirmed.

Forum redesignation 2019

The Redington Frognal Neighbourhood Forum applied to the Council to be formally redesignated as a neighbourhood forum. This was in line with the Town and Country Planning Act (1990) and neighbourhood planning regulations. The application is shown below.  

The Council approved the redesignation on 25th October 2019. This means the Forum will be designated for a further period of five years. They will be able to continue using their neighbourhood planning powers.
