An independent examiner has commenced scrutiny of the Hampstead Neighbourhood Plan. This is a key step on the path to the Plan being formally adopted. It follows a public consultation conducted by Camden, details of which can be found on Camden's website here.
The Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum developed the Plan following intensive discussions over the past three years with local residents, community groups and businesses. Under the terms of the Localism Act 2011, which gave local communities the authority to shape planning policies in their areas, the Plan will sit alongside Camden's Local Plan and will help to shape the future of Hampstead over the next fifteen years.
