The Marylebone Forum is working towards the creation and adoption of a Neighbourhood Plan.
The Plan will be a statutory document used by Westminster City Council to help determine planning applications in Marylebone.
Covering a ten-year period, the Plan will also set out priorities shared by the community for investment, the public realm and improving the neighbourhood. The Marylebone Neighbourhood Plan will sit alongside, and be in compliance with, the Mayor’s London Plan and Westminster City Council’s City Plan.
Having an adopted Neighbourhood Plan for Marylebone gives a number of benefits.
It enables us to shape the development and growth of the area and generates increased Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) being allocated to the neighbourhood portion, meaning more investment in community infrastructure in the Marylebone area.
The Forum is working with Amenity Societies, local councillors, and people who live, work and study in Marylebone to develop policies around an emerging set of ideas, including, but not limited to:
As the Neighbourhood Plan will be a statutory document, there are a range of stages the Forum must pass through in order to meet the legal requirements of plan-making.
Policies must comply with and not duplicate Westminster’s City Plan and the Mayor’s London Plan.
A formal submission to the City Council, known as a Regulation 16 submission, must be accompanied by a wealth of evidence justifying policies and detailed accounts of widespread consultation throughout the process.
