The State of Neighbourhood Planning in London 2018/19

Author: Publica, Neighbourhood Planning London

In 2018 Publica was commissioned by Neighbourhood Planning London, a volunteer organisation supporting neighbourhood planners across London, to undertake research into the state of neighbourhood planning in London. This document is the first in a series of similar reports which will be produced each spring by Neighbourhood Planning London, providing insights into the spread and progress of neighbourhood planning in London.

  • London has twelve 'made' neighbourhood plans
  • Nine boroughs in London are 'neighbourhood planning deserts' with no designated neighbourhood forums
  • The average duration of neighbourhood planning for London forums is 49 months
  • The number of new neighbourhood forums designated (by financial year) has declined since 2015
  • However, the number of 'made' neighbourhood plans is growing, and the number of completions per (financial) year is also increasing
