We are the Charlton (London) Neighbourhood Forum, a group of residents and members of the business community who have come together because we care about our community.
We are working together to improve our environment and have a say in how Charlton develops as a thriving neighbourhood.
A neighbourhood forum is a formally-appointed group of people who oversee the process of developing a neighbourhood plan.
What is a neighbourhood plan? A neighbourhood plan is a document drafted by the Neighbourhood Forum containing formal planning guidance for the area of concern. This gives the community, through the Neighbourhood Forum, a statutory right to be informed on emerging planning applications.
The neighbourhood plan is formal planning policy and must be taken into consideration by the local planning authority (in this instance Royal Greenwich Council) when determining planning applications.
