The draft Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Plan includes policies on a range of matters including character, heritage, community uses, retail, offices, housing, cultural uses, transport and the environment.
If adopted, it will become part of Westminster’s statutory development plan and will be used alongside the Council’s own planning documents and the Mayor’s London Plan in determining planning applications in the Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Area.
The Council appointed Ms Jill Kingaby BSc (Econ) MSc MRTPI as independent examiner (the 'Examiner') for the Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Plan.
The Examiner has now considered the draft plan and all submission documents, all representations received, and subsequent modifications proposed to it. The examination into whether the draft plan meets the ‘Basic Conditions’ has now concluded, and the Examiner's recommendations are set out in the report below.
The Council will now consider 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.
