Resident-led Neighbourhood Forums
The Localism Act 2011 introduced new powers for people to make neighbourhood plans and neighbourhood planning orders, with reduced interference from central government. These new powers are in addition to existing opportunities for community involvement, which are already part of the planning system.
There are number of Neighbourhood Planning initiatives currently being considered in Kingston. These are independent from each other and all in different stages of their formation. We will update this page and links below as they progress.
Neighbourhood forums currently under formation:
North Kingston Forum
Grove Ward Neighbourhgood Forum
