Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Forum (KNF) was designated by Westminster City Council on 21 July 2015 as a neighbourhood forum under the Localism Act 2011.

We have a five year exclusive right to develop an official Neighbourhood Plan for our area.  All development plan policies undergo a process of formal examination and uniquely in the case of Neighbourhood Plans a referendum as well.  At the point of being adopted, Neighbourhood Plans have equal standing to other development plan policies, if not greater.  

For clarity, amongst the variety of material considerations which will influence decisions made, emerging planning policies (e.g. emerging Neighbourhood Plans) can be especially important.

We are concerned that Westminster City Council may not give us the same say as Parish Councils in determining the use of funds raised by the Community Infrastructure Levy.
