2 Why do we need a Neighbourhood Plan for the Lee Forum area?

The aim of the Lee Forum founders was to create a platform from which the local community could have a say on planning policy within the Lee Forum area.

The reason for a Neighbourhood Plan is to ensure that the green spaces, heritage, architecture, community assets and local amenities, which are so valued by the residents of the Lee Forum area, are protected and enhanced whilst ensuring that future developments help to create a cohesive, healthy and sustainable environment and encourage the creation of an ongoing history for the current and future benefit of all.
