The Redington Frognal Neigbourhood Plan passed the referendum held on 17th June 2021. It now forms part of the development plan for the Redington Frognal neighbourhood area.
Stages in the preparation of the Redington Frognal Neighbourhood Plan are set out in time order below.
Redington Frognal Area and Forum applications
On 5 September 2014 the Council approved the designation of the Redington Frognal Neighbourhood Area and Neighbourhood Forum. Public consultation on the associated applications took place between 26th June and 8th August 2014.
The 2014 approved applications can be viewed below. They show the area in which the neighbourhood planning powers apply.
The Redington Frognal Neighbourhood Forum was redesignated for another 5 years on 25th October 2019.
Redington Frognal Neighbourhood Forum submitted its proposed Neighbourhood Plan to Camden Council. All documents are PDFs.
- Draft Redfrog Neighbourhood Plan (May 2020)
- Basic Conditions Statement
- Consultation Statement
- Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Screening Opinion (LB Camden)
- Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) Screening Opinion (LB Camden)
Additionally, the Forum submitted a document setting out complementary actions which are intended to help to deliver the Neighbourhood Plan. This does not contain planning policies and therefore does not form a part of the statutory development plan for the area.
