The Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum is a group of local residents and businesses. We are creating a Neighbourhood Plan under the terms of the Localism Act 2011, which gave local communities the authority to shape planning policies in their areas. This is a chance to play a bigger part in the way the village develops, and to protect the things we love about Hampstead.
We are working on a draft of the Plan, and will circulate this when it is completed. The draft results from wide consultation with local people so as to build a vision of Hampstead's future. For example, we produced a Vision document on which many residents and businesses commented. The aims and objectives that were expressed in the document were later discussed in a public meeting.
