Is Neighbourhood Planning for Cricklewood?


Would you like to have a say in how our neighbourhood is planned now and in 5, 10, 15 years time?

A way to do this is for local residents, business, community groups and organisations to set up a Neighbourhood Forum and together work on a neighbourhood plan. Once the neighbourhood plan is approved by referendum, it would have legal weight on future planning decision making. 

If you live and work in Cricklewood, you are invited to join us on Thursday 28th April, 3.00-5.00 pm, at Whitefield School, Claremont Road, Room IT5 

Our previous meetings have highlighted:

  • the need and importance for local residents and community groups, local organisations and businesses to come together to address this question
  • the benefits and difficulties of creating a neighbourhood forum and working on a neighbourhood plan. Key questions have also been raised.

James Earl, Chairman of Fortune Green and West Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum shared his own experience at our meeting last month.  This week we will be hearing from Maggy Meade-King, Neighbourhood Planning Champion from Highgate Neighbourhood Forum, who will share with us their experience and advice. For further information see

Tea, coffee and some nibbles will be provided.

This free event is kindly supported by a Community Organisers Mobilisation Grant and kindly hosted by Whitefield School.

Please RSVP luisa(@)clitterhouse(dot)com

If for any reason you cannot join us this time but would like to share your views and/or be kept updated, please let Luisa know.

These regular meetings take place every second Tuesday (7-8.30pm), second Thursday (3-5pm) and every fourth Thursday (3-5 pm) until the end of June 2016.

We hope you all can join us next time, 10 May 7.00-8.30 pm.  (Please note later start time)
