Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Forum Re-designation

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Business and Planning

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Approval required to re-designate Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Forum for a further 5 years, to enable them to continue carrying out neighbourhood planning matters in Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Area


That the Knightsbridge 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 with the purpose of making Knightsbridge the most desirable and attractive residential and cultural area in London in which to live, work, study, and visit. A number of priorities are identified for the Forum, which include:

·                 Seeking to ensure the neighbourhood portion of CIL are utilised in line

with the Knightsbridge Neighbourhood Plan

·                 Reviewing the policies in the ‘made’ Knightsbridge Neighbourhood

Plan and updating as necessary;

·                 Commenting on planning applications or consultations relating to the

Neighbourhood Area.


These priorities represent strong reasons for the Neighbourhood Forum to continue

to carry out neighbourhood planning responsibilities in the area. Consultation on the

re-designation application also highlighted support for the application, no objections, 

or competing applications.
