Crofton Park and Honor Oak become a neighbourhood area

Lewisham Council reports:

Crofton Park and Honor Oak Park has been designated a neighbourhood area with its own neighbourhood forum. It is the first neighbourhood area to be designated in the borough. This means that, through the forum, local people can now prepare a neighbourhood plan that will set out how they want their area to develop.

Once agreed, the plan will become a legal document that must be considered when decisions are made on planning applications. Neighbourhood plans can contain a wide variety of policies relating to building and development, from the types of extensions people can build on their homes to the delivery of commercial development.

Membership of the forum will be open to anyone who lives or works in the neighbourhood area. For more information contact Cllr Pauline Morrison by email cllr_pauline.morrison@lewisham.gov.uk or on 020 8244 5315. The designation was approved by the Mayor of Lewisham at a meeting of Mayor and Cabinet on Wednesday 16 July 2014.

The provinces asserting their identity within the loving embrace of Greater Brockley? This will not end well I fear.

So does Brockley (near the station) get it's own neighbourhood?

If you want one you can apply to set one up. Jury's out on how useful they are.

Mere Lebensraum for the Greater Brockey volk. I'm sure Brockley Nick has his puppet forum leaders ready. Marshall Monkeyboy of Crofton Park?

This is what residents of New Cross are trying to achieve and they're presentation at Telegraph Hill Assembly was the first time I had heard about anything like this. I'm guessing the Honor Oak estate does not feature in the new CO and HOP neighbourhood plans
