Forum seeks new plan for Kennington Oval and Vauxhall
Local residents, businesses and community groups from Kennington, Oval and Vauxhall came together recently to form a new neighbourhood forum in order to prepare a new neighbourhood plan for the area.
The neighbourhood plan will set out planning policy on issues like housing, heritage, design and open spaces. Neighbourhood planning powers were introduced to give members of the community a more hands on role in the planning of their neighbourhoods. It is a process that is led by the community and supported by the Council.
However, before a neighbourhood plan can be prepared, the neighbourhood area to which the plan will apply needs to be defined and a neighbourhood forum needs to be formally designated. The neighbourhood forum will then have responsibility for preparing the neighbourhood plan.
Lambeth Council has received a dual application from the emerging Kennington, Oval and Vauxhall neighbourhood forum for the designation of the Kennington, Oval and Vauxhall Neighbourhood Area, and the Kennington, Oval and Vauxhall Neighbourhood Forum.
