No. 2   June 2016
Thank you for the positive response to the launch of the Neighbourhood Planners.London network and the messages of support. The momentum is already growing to strengthen and raise the profile of neighbourhood planning in the capital.

In this Bulletin we celebrate the success of the referendum in Kentish Town, spotlight the Government's publicity campaign and look for early signs of interest from Mayor Khan. There's also news of a changed date for the next Neighbourhood Planning Gathering to 21st July and an updated Neighbourhood Planners.London Neighbourhood Planners.London MAP and LIST. We would also like your suggestions for a major Neighbourhood Planners.London event this autumn.
Kentish Town says YES - Kentish Town became the fifth neighbourhood in London to pass at referendum with a 90.9% vote in favour. Balloons, posters and even a campaign truck were deployed and a nifty You Tube video using only a smartphone helped raise awareness.  The turn out was 13.75%. You can view the Plan here and read the press release here.
Make a plan, make a difference - It has been hard to miss the Government's marketing campaign for neighbourhood planning - with advertising online, at tube stations, on bus stops, in local papers and on local radio more people have probably heard about it in a month than in the previous five years. 22 London boroughs were among the targets. Don't miss the helpful new introductory website.
The sixth London Neighbourhood Planning Gathering will now be held on evening of Thursday 21st July - this is a NEW DATE  moved from 7th July.  Fittingly it will be in Kentish Town - the latest neighbourhood area to win at referendum. As well as meeting neighbourhood planners from across London and beyond there will be a chance to discuss the success or otherwise of the Community Infrastructure Levy in the capital.

The Gathering is organised by Angela Koch, ImaginePlaces #LNPlanningGathering
Mayor Khan's priorities - Neighbourhood planning may not have featured highly in Sadiq Khan's Mayoral campaign but it is immediately relevant to three of his early priorities - see his announcements on air pollution, Green Belt protection and protecting office space for small businesses.  
Updated MAP and LIST - The latest Neighbourhood Planners.London MAP and LIST are now available. We've added new areas and updated contact details. Please use the map to get in touch with other neighbourhood planers and let us know of any errors, updates or omissions. Find the MAP and LIST at our website.
Autumn event - We are planning an autumn event for Neighbourhood Planners.London. This will follow on from the Local London event held in Spring 2015 in Coin Street. What would you like to see included? Are there topics you want discussed? Would you like to hear more from Examiners, planning professionals or politicians? Would you like to debate the role of Neighbourhood Planners.London? Let us know using the contacts below. We are also looking for sponsors and affordable venues.

Neighbourhood Planners.London exists to support neighbourhood planners in London and raise the profile of neighbourhood planning in the capital.  Support us by offering your time or making a donation.  You can find out more on our website, contact us by email or get involved on twitter using the links above.
