We have now started our Regulation 14 consultation on the 'quick' Neighbourhood Plan, full details can be found here in this link to the Regulation 14 page.
The Isle of Dogs Neighbourhood Planning Forum is a resident led body that has the statutory power to write a Neighbourhood Plan for the Isle of Dogs. We were officially recognised on the 5th April 2016 by Mayor John Biggs but we are an independent resident led body that has its own powers granted through the 2011 Localism Act. The Neighbourhood Plan can set legal policies that will guide development for the next 15 years and its main objective will be to ensure that development in the area is sustainable, that it works for residents today as well as in the future. We are trying to make sure that public infrastructure like schools, GP surgeries, transport, parks and street lights are delivered at the same time as new residential buildings.
We will also be working with Tower Hamlets Council, the GLA & Transport for London on their plans for the Isle of Dogs.
The Forum is led by residents, the Plan must be written by and approved by residents in a public referendum so if you want to be kept up to date with what we are doing, how you can get involved or when we are next meeting fill in the newsletter form to the right, have a read of this website or watch the video below.
