Purpose:

Decision on the application to designate the proposed Hyde Park and Paddington Neighbourhood Forum as the neighbourhood forum for the Hyde Park and Paddington Neighbourhood Area.

Decision:

 

1.            That the Cabinet Member considered the representations received in response to the proposed Hyde Park and Paddington Neighbourhood Forum.

1.         The proposed Hyde Park and Paddington Neighbourhood Forum is considered to meet the requirements of the neighbourhood planning legislation. The Forum’s written constitution clearly states that it has been established for the express purpose to promote and improve the social, economic or environmental well-being of the Hyde Park and Paddington Area, whilst it also has a membership of more than 21 persons and is open to individuals who live or work in the area.

 

2.         Furthermore, the Hyde Park and Paddington Neighbourhood Forum is considered to be representative of the designated Hyde Park and Paddington Neighbourhood Area. The membership is drawn from different parts of Hyde Park and Paddington and from different sections of the community. It is considered that the purpose of the neighbourhood Forum and its proposal to address itself to issues of local concern, including the preservation and improvement of the area, reflects the general existing character of the area.

 

3.         The proposed Hyde Park and Paddington Neighbourhood Forum received support during its respective period for representations. The City Council received a total of six responses of which three were explicitly supportive of the Forum. No objections were received.
