This consultation has now closed.

The council advises and assists local communities in the preparation of their Neighbourhood Development Plans. A Neighbourhood Development Plan is a statutory planning document setting out general planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood. The council is also responsible for approving the designated areas for the plans and designating Neighbourhood Area Forums to develop the plans.

The Council approved designations for West Finchley Neighbourhood Area and Forum back in 26th November 2015 by Barnet Council. Since then the West Finchley Neighbourhood Forum have produced a Neighbourhood Plan for their area; this is currently under examination. Despite this progress, the Forum after 5 years in operation, must now re-apply for formal designation beyond 26th November 2020 for another five years. This is required by the Town and Country Planning Act (1990) and the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations.
