First Neighbourhood Planners.London Conference

Wednesday 8 March 2017, 2-6pm
Impact Hub Westminster 
Neighbourhood Planning in London - the next five years: We're delighted to announce the first Neighbourhood Planners.London Conference. As neighbourhood planning in the capital enters its second five years we will bring neighbourhood planners together to reflect on their experience and discuss the future.

The conference will include:
  • the launch of our new report on the way London's Local Plans address neighbourhood planning
  • updates from neighbourhood forums across London
  • a review of whether the community infrastructure levy is living up to its promise
  • debate over whether neighbourhood planning is pushing the boundaries enough
  • the role of Neighbourhood Planners.London.
The conference program is still being finalised and details will be shared on our website and via Twitter. We are also exploring options for an evening social event.

Register now if you want to attend the first Neighbourhood Planners.London Conference. The event is free and donations will be requested. Our thanks to Locality for supporting this event.
London's first business neighbourhood - The neighbourhood plan for Central Ealing has been some time in the making. One of the original frontrunner areas its plan is now in the hands of Examiner John Parmiter. A hearing has been called on 16 February to be held in Ealing's Town Hall and anyone is free to attend.

The Central Ealing neighbourhood plan is the first business neighbourhood to reach this stage in London and only the second in the country after Milton Keynes.
