Harlesden Neighbourhood Area and Forum Designation

Examination of the Draft Plan 

Mr David Hogger BA MSc MRTPI MCIHT has been appointed to undertake the independent examination of the Harlesden Neighbourhood Plan.

The draft Plan has been produced by Harlesden Neighbourhood Forum to guide development within the Harlesden Neighbourhood Area, which is located within Brent, Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham. The London Borough of Brent and Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) are the local planning authorities for the neighbourhood area. The Plan sets out the vision for the neighbourhood area, and contains a number of planning policies and community aspirations that will help to achieve this.

The council and OPDC invited comments on the draft Plan during August and September 2018. All comments received during the consultation period have been passed to Mr Hogger for consideration.
