The Neighbourhood Plan
The Localism Act 2011 encourages Local Neighbourhood Forums to play a key role in local planning policy for new developments.
Marylebone is already densely developed and is covered by extensive planning policy set out in the Mayor’s City Plan and Westminster Council’s City Plan, and the City Council’s supplementary planning guidance documents which give further guidance on development for Listed buildings and within Conservation Areas as a whole.
Our challenge is to find gaps within the existing planning policy framework where we can propose positive changes specifically for our local area.
Marylebone Forum members have drafted emerging policies, but further policy development is currently on hold, pending the imminent launch of Westminster City Council’s new City Plan (due November 2018).
We plan to review our emerging polices in the light of the new City Plan, before deciding on our next steps.
