In submitting your application you acknowledge that the Localism Act 2011 requires that Membership is limited to those who demonstrably 'live' or 'work' in the Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Area (Knightsbridge Area) or elected members of Westminster City Council whose area falls within the Knightsbridge Area. This may include 'students'.
Successful applicants will receive a letter of confirmation if their application is approved by the Steering Group.
