The Crofton Park and Honor Oak Neighbourhood Forum

BCer Robert points out that Crofton Park ward is also trying to launch a Neighbourhood Forum. As the application for the Crofton Park and Honor Oak Neighbourhood Forum states, it will copy the ward boundaries.

Lewisham Council is now consulting the community about the idea. Like Civilisation, the first player to plant their flag on this area gets sole claim on the territory, with no other group entitled to create a Neighbourhood Plan.

There's not a lot in the application to react to. It's all sensible stuff and the stated aims are the usual communal platitudes: "to promote the social, economic and environmental well-being of the area... to work with members of the local community in assessing the priority of needs, and to work together to address these needs... to encourage the goodwill and involvement of the wider community, etc and so on."

Still, if you're interested in getting involved, there are details here.
