Neighbourhood Planning

Under the Localism Act 2011, communities who wish to take forward a neighbourhood plan are required to establish a Neighbourhood Forum and a Neighbourhood Area.

Ickenham Neighbourhood Forum

The council received a formal application from Ickenham residents for the designation of a Neighbourhood Area and a Neighbourhood Forum.

The application aims to demonstrate that the group meets the conditions set out in the Localism Act 2011 for preparing a neighbourhood development plan and outlines the Neighbourhood Area, map and written constitution:

The council invited comments on this application from Tuesday 20 September 2016 to Wednesday 2 November 2016. Representations considered whether the Neighbourhood Area and the Neighbourhood Forum were appropriate to be designated. Following a review of the consultation findings, Ickenham Neighbourhood Forum and the corresponding area were approved by Cabinet on 15 December 2016.

Ickenham Neighbourhood Forum could then begin preparing their Neighbourhood Plan.

A Neighbourhood Forum is open for anyone who lives or works within the designated Neighbourhood Area. If you're interested in getting involved with Ickenham Neighbourhood Forum, please contact Chris Mountain (Chair) at
