On 26 January 2014, about 50 people gathered at Burgh House to discuss what was important to them about Hampstead, and their priorities for the village’s future. The purpose was to begin setting the mandate for the Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum, which is being established to develop a Neighbourhood Plan under the provisions of the Localism Act.
The meeting was held in a ‘World Café’ format, designed to stimulate conversation around small tables. Each table was given a question intended to provoke the expression of views. This report groups the ideas expressed into themes that could form the basis of the future activities of the Forum – and thus of the eventual plan. While these themes appeared to be important to all those present, a wide range of views – in some cases far from unanimous – were expressed.
