Autumn 2016 will see the council consulting on its new Borough-Wide Local Plan. The North Kingston Forum invites the residents of North Kingston to join us in preparing our own plan, a positive vision of our future made by us, for us.
Do you want to be somebody who has a say over where new homes, shops and offices are built? And how they look? Or maybe you want to improve your local shopping street? Or protect your local favourite spaces? Or ensure there are enough new homes for young families?
Neighbourhood planning is a vital part of the Government’s plans to help local communities play a much stronger role in the shaping of their area. For the first time, local people can create a plan that allows them to develop planning policies that reflect the priorities of their area and have real legal weight. The whole community then decides at a referendum vote whether the local authority should bring the plan into force.
Please complete our short survey and tell us what is important to you!

This is the start of our consultation process. Future public meetings, workshops and online surveys will follow.
If you have experience as a planner, architect, graphic designer, legal, web designer or campaigner and could offer a small amount of time pro bono, then we would love to hear from you!
