About neighbourhood planning
What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
Having a Neighbourhood Plan tells local decision makers and potential developers that we have a strong community, a vision and want to have an active say in improving our neighbourhood.
Neighbourhood Planning also formally enables communities to play a much stronger role in shaping development in their area over the 15-year lifespan of the plan, in ways that really make sense for local people and businesses.
The Harlesden Neighbourhood Plan is a planning guide put together by locals for positive future development in Harlesden. We have spoken to the community and local stakeholders about their views and created a full document detailing our policies and aspirations for:
• Local economy
• Community facilities
• Transport and access
• Environment, heritage and open space
• Community infrastructure projects
• Local assets, buildings and site designation
You can find out more about neighbourhood planning at the website of the charity Locality.
