Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Forum was designated by Westminster City Council on 21 July 2015 under the Localism Act 2011 to develop a neighbourhood plan.

The Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Plan has been developed by the community over more than three years and after two statutory public consultations and a formal 'Examination'.  Most importantly, it would support retention of the Hyde Park Barracks and frame any redevelopment there. It would also encourage retail shops and manage cafés, mitigate construction activity, encourage major development to address genuine housing needs, reduce air pollution, maximise the benefits of trees and ensure that at least 25% of the Community Infrastructure Levy is spent locally.  Read a [summary] of the Plan or the full [Plan].

Following a successful Referendum the Plan would become part of the statutory development plan and be used alongside the Council's own planning documents and the Mayor's London Plan in determining planning applications. 

We will need your help to raise awareness of the Referendum and encourage people to 'Vote Yes'.  Any registered voter whose residential address is within the Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Area would be entitled to vote.  You can find out more about voting here.

Please contact us if you would like to get involved or have any questions.  We are keen to hear from you.

How would I vote?

Westminster City Council is considering the Examiner's recommendations before publishing its ‘Decision Statement’.  Depending on the outcome of this, the plan will then need to proceed to a referendum before it can formally become part of the statutory development plan. Find out about voting.
