Following our formal application to designate the Marylebone Forum as a neighbourhood forum, Westminster City Council have informed us that they will undertake the ‘period for representations’ from Wednesday 26th November 2014 until Wednesday 21st January 2015. This is an eight week period (rather than the normal six weeks) to take into account the Christmas holiday period.
Our application will be published on the City Council’s website and the City Council will also be writing to various organisations within Westminster, in particular within the Marylebone area, to inform them of our application and to allow representations to be made.
Following this period for representations, the City Council will be required to make a formal decision in relation to the designation of a neighbourhood forum in Marylebone. There is no time limit on this but we would hope to know within a couple of months from the close of the representations period.
