The St Quintin and Woodlands Neighbourhood Forum
The St Quintin and Woodlands Neighbourhood Forum (SQWNF) and Neighbourhood Area were initially designated in July 2013. The SQWNF has since been re-designated, a designation which will run to July 2023. Visit the SQWNF's website.
The St Quintin and Woodlands Neighbourhood Plan
The SQWNF prepared the Neighbourhood Plan between 2013 and 2015, before submitting a draft to the Council in May 2015.
Following a six week public consultation, a public hearing was held on the Neighbourhood Plan in September 2015. This was intended to allow the Inspector to discuss the draft plan with local stakeholders and to decide whether the plan met a number of 'basic conditions'. The inspector was of the view that, with some modifications, the plan did meet these conditions and should proceed to referendum.
The referendum was held on 25 February 2016. 92 per cent, of those who voted, voted in favor of the plan.
Following approval at referendum the SQWNP became part of the development plan for the area. It is read alongside the Council's Local Plan and the Mayor's London Plan when determining planning applications in the area. In July 2018 the Neighbourhood Plan was formally confirmed by the Council.
