Neighbourhood planning is a vital part of the Government's plan to help local communities play a much stronger role in the shaping of their area.
The North Kingston Forum (NKForum) wishes to work with our community, council, local developers & key stakeholders to create a Neighbourhood Plan (NPlan) which will be a vehicle to guide, promote & allow balanced, sustainable change in North Kingston.
For more information on the NKForum & how Neighbourhood planning can help our community please visit www.northkingstonforum.org
The NKForum has made great progress in the last year, our Neighbourhood area (Canbury & Tudor Wards) was approved by the Royal Borough of Kingston. We expect to be fully ratified by the Council by Aug 2017 & will be able to proceed with the development of the North Kingston NPlan.
It is concerning that Neighbourhood planning in North Kingston met with significant opposition from some key developers who will be changing the face of the area. They may prefer not to consult with the community in the future but the NK Forum wishes to work with them to support the right developments in the right places.
£5000 will enable the forum to achieve key tasks:
1.Continue employing the services of RCoH/Neil Homer (Our Independent Community Planning Consultant), who advises the NKForum Committee, to support us with the creation of the NPlan.
2.To help us reach out locally via social media, community engagement & buy marketing materials to gather your thoughts & ideas for the NPlan which will be your vision for North Kingston.
3.A full area maildrop to canvas opinions for the NPlan.
To keep moving forward we are asking for support from our friends, neighbours, business owners & residents of North Kingston. Your help with a £5 (or more) donation towards our project would be a tremendous help & greatly appreciated.
