Neighbourhood forums play an increasingly important role in the planning process and proactively empower and bring businesses, residents, councillors, and other local stakeholders together to help shape the future of their areas. This growth is reflected in the growing number of Neighbourhood Plans and Westminster City Council’s recognition of the role of forums in the emerging Early Community Engagement Guidance.
The guide provides a summary of the ambitions of each Forum in Westminster, their contact details, and website. The guide was launched at a WPA webinar chaired by Kanda’s MD Karen Alcock, with Cllr Elizabeth Hitchcock (Deputy Cabinet Member for Planning), Simon Birkett (Knightsbridge NF), Matthew Bennett (Soho NF), Matt Bell (Grosvenor) and Michael Clarkson (WCC).
