As we embark upon our journey to develop a Neighbourhood Plan for St. John’s Wood, two things will be important. First is that our membership is as educated as it can be in Neighbourhood Planning. Hence our next General Meeting will include a presentation from a representative of Westminster City Council to outline the council’s views on neighbourhood planning. Second is that we need to learn from those who have gone before us. To this end, I would point everyone to the Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Forum website (www.knightsbridgeforum.org). The Planning page of their website holds great examples of what we are about to do with respect to a Vision for our Neighbourhood Plan, the accumulation of an evidence base and a way in which to structure the content of a Neighbourhood Plan. Everyone is encouraged to consult this before our next General Meeting on 5th October.
