Starting at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 7:15 p.m.)

All FBWRA members welcome -please come along.
R.S.V.P. to fbwra@btinternet.com

Barnet’s new Local Plan proposals- we will be hearing from members of the Council’s planning team about Barnet’s proposals for the borough’s new Local Plan and how they tie in with the London Plan and will affect you and your local area.
All planning decisions should be made in line with your Council’s development plan, the most significant part of which is the Local Plan. Local Plans set out the long term development strategy of an area.

This includes deciding where new development should be concentrated. Local Plans identify: where, and how many, new homes should be built; the locations where businesses need more land to expand; which areas need to be regenerated, where new shops should be located; and which areas should be protected from development (such as sensitive landscapes or habitats). They also cover more detailed issues, such as the provision (or not!) of parking for new homes and residential design.
