Event description

Description

The new London Plan is out for consultation till early March. It is a significant document for neighbourhood planning and forms part of the unique three tier development plan system in London. All neighbourhood plans must be in “general conformity” with its policies in order to meet the Basic Conditions.

The draft London Plan says a lot about involving communities but makes very little mention of neighbourhood planning. It contains important policies on issues such as housing, design and town centres which neighbourhood plans could deliver locally. It backs good growth but doesn't yet grasp that this is as much about how decisions are taken as what is developed.

This Neighbourhood Planners.London workshop provides the opportunity to discuss all this and more. Meet and debate the new London Plan with neighbourhood planners from across the capital. The event will be led by Tony Burton and informed by a new Neighbourhood Planners.London discussion document - The New London Plan: why so little support for neighbourhood planning? - prepared by Henry Peterson.
