Drop in on Thursday 22nd March between 3pm and 6pm to the community room at the West Norwood Health & Leisure Centre  SE27 0DF to have your say or before the deadline of Friday 6th April  go online  at:

Policy for planning application decisions

The Lambeth Local Plan  sets out the vision, strategic objectives and policies for development of  the built environment development in Lambeth. The Plan covers matters from telephone boxes to housing, work places, town centres, infrastructure (such as health facilities and schools), transport, environment and historic buildings. Together with the London Mayor’s it forms the statutory basis for deciding on planning applications.

The council is now starting  a 2 year process to update the 2015 plan. The first stage – ending on 4th December 2017 – is consulting on the issues to be reviewed.

To have your say see the online survey at: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/lambeth-local-plan-review-2017
