Launch of CIL Funds Survey

Marylebone Forum has developed a short survey about allocation of CIL funds, to be launched at Marylebone Christmas Lights Switch On. If you live, work or study here, have your say on local priorities to spend £670k CIL funds. The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a tax that local authorities charge developers for infrastructure needs arising from new developments. As a designated Forum, Marylebone Forum has an advisory role to Westminster City Council on the allocation of 15% of CIL funds in Marylebone. To date, £4.5m has been collected from new developments, so the Forum can advise on the allocation of £670k towards local projects (which must meet WCC criteria for funding). The Forum has launched a short online survey to understand community priorities. The survey will run online for 12 weeks from 14 November. Hard copies are available – please use the Contact page to request. The Forum will be circulating the survey through local amenity societies, business groups, places of worship, schools etc to encourage the widest local participation possible. Please complete the survey and encourage your colleagues and neighbours to do so...

Marylebone Forum on hold pending new City Plan

The Marylebone Forum Committee has taken the decision to put on hold its work towards the development of our Neighbourhood Plan. This means that there will be no formal Committee activity on the Plan until further notice. The Committee will remain in place as will all the officers and we still would like to hold an AGM in January 2018 although the date is yet to be decided. This decision has been taken on the recommendation of our planning consultants, rCOH, and for a number of reasons. It was announced on 16th June that Westminster City Council is to undertake a full review of its City Plan, at present scheduled for adoption in Autumn 2018; the Mayor is also in the process of revising the London Plan. Our Plan would need to be in general conformity with the strategic policies of both, as these would prevail over any Neighbourhood Plan in case of conflict. It therefore makes sense to delay our planning activities until more is known about the scope and content of both. Further, disappointingly, and in spite of our best endeavours, we have not been entirely successful in fully engaging the business and resident community in this project, and this is crucial for the successful development of the Plan. It has therefore become evident that we will require professional input and assistance to get to grips with other ways of achieving fuller community engagement. This would however require further funding, and we will need to explore ways of obtaining this. Individual members of the Committee will however continue to work on current issues that concern our members....
