We are currently consulting on an application to re-designate the South Bank and Waterloo Neighbours Neighbourhood Forum.

We have received an application to re-designate South Bank and Waterloo Neighbours (SoWN) as a neighbourhood forum, which can be viewed below.

SoWN were designated by the council as a neighbourhood forum on 10 February 2014.

A neighbourhood forum designation expires after 5 years and the SoWN neighbourhood forum will expire on 10 February 2019.

In accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, we are seeking your comments on the application for a period of seven weeks from 23 November 2018 to 11 January 2019.

Printed copies of the application are available at the following locations during their normal opening hours:

Further information on neighbourhood planning in Lambeth is available in our Neighbourhood Planning Guide.

What happens next?

The application is a cross-border application with the London Borough of Southwark.

A decision on whether to re-designate the SoWN neighbourhood forum will be made by both councils within 20 weeks of 23 November 2018. If the neighbourhood forum is designated no other organisation or body may be designated for the neighbourhood area until the neighbourhood forum designation expires or is withdrawn.
