Heathrow Neighbourhood Plan Spring Updates

Posted: March 27th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Neighbourhood plan | Tags: , , | No Comments »

Since the first Neighbourhood Forum meeting, the Heathrow villages neighbourhood planning committee have been working steadily behind the scenes. Have a look at some of the updates below.

np boundary   Area Boundary:
  • The picture above shows the boundary decided by the neighbourhood forum. The idea was to focus on the three villages of Sipson, Harmondsworth and Harlington, with the knowledge that it is more realistic to start small as a local neighbourhood plan is a big endeavourer, requiring lots of volunteered time and energy. The villages of Cranford and Longford can also get involved in neighbourhood planning at any point further down the line. We are now planning to get this formally designated by the council.
Our issues
  • Since our first neighbourhood forum meeting, we have decided to add another issue ‘health and wellbeing’ to our list of priorities for the area. (Other issues are housing, transport, enterprise, community spaces, green spaces and heritage.)
Looking for roles * The Forum is missing representatives for two of our issues – enterprise and health/wellbeing. Do you know someone who could fit either of these roles? They would need to come to some NP meetings and have knowledge of how the issue is present within the Heathrow villages. * We also need people to help with online media such as website updates and social media – do you have the skills and could you help? The year ahead After piloting our community consultation questionaire at Grow Heathrow’s 5th Birthday on the 28th March we are planning community consultation activities for the Spring ahead. If you know of community events or activities where you feel this would be relevant, please let us know. We will also be attending and organising other meetings and events, so we hope to see you soon. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about any of the above. We now have a mailing list – if you want to sign up, please email us, or sign up on the website Regards Heathrow Neighbourhood Planning committee
