St James's Neighbourhood Forum Re-designation

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Business and Planning

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


That the St James’s Neighbourhood Forum be re-designated for a further period of 5 years and a formal designation notice be published under delegated authority by the Director of Policy and Projects.


Reasons for Decision 


The City Council is required to assess whether the purpose of the neighbourhood forum reflects (in general terms) the character of the area. The application submitted by the Forum for re-designation states that the Forum was established to promote and improve the economic and environmental wellbeing of the area. It also makes clear that the continued preparation of a neighbourhood plan is a priority for the Forum. The Forum has carried out significant initial work on the neighbourhood plan and will carry out consultation on a draft plan in the upcoming months. The main purpose for the existence of the St James’s Neighbourhood Forum is therefore stronger now than when it was initially designated.


Consultation on the re-designation of the St James’s Neighbourhood Forum highlighted support for the application and no objections or competing applications had been received.
