Fortune Green and West Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum

The Council formally adopted the Fortune Green and West Hampstead (FGWH) Neighbourhood Plan on 16 September 2015. The plan now forms part of the statutory ‘development plan’ for the area and therefore will be used alongside the Council’s own adopted planning documents when making decisions on planning applications in the neighbourhood area.

Stages in the preparation of the Fortune Green and West Hampstead neighbourhood plan are set out chronologically below.

Neighbourhood Area and Forum applications

On 9 May 2013 the Council approved the designation of the Fortune Green and West Hampstead Neighbourhood Area and Neighbourhood Forum. Public consultation on the applications for the Fortune Green and West Hampstead area and forum took place from 31 January to 15 March 2013.

Area and Forum application documents

The Council undertook an SEA (Strategic Environmental Assessment) screening of FGWH draft Neighbourhood Development Plan. The results of this screening can be downloaded below:

Neighbourhood Plan submitted documents

The Fortune Green and West Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum submitted the final version of their Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents to the Council in September 2014.

The Council consulted on the documents above which closed on 31 October 2014.

Examination

The Council, with support from the Fortune Green and West Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum, appointed Mr John Parmiter to hold an independent examination on the Plan. A public hearing was held on 11 December 2014 in Hampstead Synagogue. Invited representatives took part in the discussions.

The Examiner’s report in January 2015 concluded that, subject to the policy modifications recommended being made, the Plan will meet the Basic Conditions and should proceed to a referendum.

The Council decided on 27 March 2015 that the Plan, as modified, would meet the relevant neighbourhood planning regulations and legal tests and should therefore proceed to a local referendum.

Referendum

To meet the requirements of the Localism Act 2011, a referendum was held on 9 July 2015. The referendum question was “Do you want London Borough of Camden to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Fortune Green and West Hampstead to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

The Neighbourhood Plan passed referendum with a YES vote of 93% (referendum result). 

Neighbourhood Plan ‘made’ (adopted) 16 September 2015
