A public consultation on Hampstead's draft Neighbourhood Plan was launched at the Forum's annual general meeting on 8th March 2017. Here's how to view the Plan and give your views. The consultation period will finish on 3rd May.
The Hampstead Neighbourhood Plan 2017-2032, once approved, will influence planning decisions in Hampstead for the next fifteen years. It has been written by the Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum following intensive discussions with local residents, community groups and businesses. Please note that it remains a draft. Errors and misprints will be corrected following the consultation.
Please take a short survey to tell us whether you support the Plan's policies. You can do this by clicking here. It will only take a couple of minutes to answer the questions on what you have read. The survey includes very short summaries of the policies.
You can view the slides from the public presentation of the Plan on March 8th 2017 here. The slides also include very short summaries of the Plan's policies.
The Plan has seven appendices that provide supporting evidence. These can be viewed by clicking as follows: The first is a summary of the evidence base. Second is an illustrated description of the character areas that make up the Forum area. Third is a list of heritage assets. The fourth appendix details the open spaces and green corridors, with maps of each. Fifth is evidence justifying local green spaces. Sixth is a list of veteran and important trees, with photographs. The seventh appendix lists important views, with photographs.
Underlying the Plan is a mass of further evidence collected by the Forum to support the policies that are are proposed in the Plan. If you want to delve into this evidence base, start here.

Once we have received comments and taken them into account, a revised draft will be submitted to Camden, which will hold its own mandatory public consultation. The Plan will then be inspected by an independent examiner. When it has passed these stages, the Plan will be put to a public referendum. If it is passed, it will take its place as a statutory document alongside Camden's Local Plan.
