Finsbury Park and Stroud Green neighbourhood forum

The Finsbury Park and Stroud Green neighbourhood plan working group submitted an application to establish a neighbourhood area and neighbourhood forum for Finsbury Park and Stroud Green under Schedule 9 of the Localism Act 2011 in the summer of 2018.

The neighbourhood area included parts of Hackney, Islington and Haringey was approved by all three boroughs in September 2018. Haringey Council determined to remove Finsbury Park (the full extent of Finsbury Park open space) from the Forum’s designated area.

Central Stamford Hill neighbourhood forum

The Council has considered two further applications for neighbourhood forums for the Central Stamford Hill neighbourhood area which covers an area in the north of the borough. At the cabinet meeting held on the 24 November 2014, the Council turned down the two neighbourhood forums.

Decision

The cabinet resolved that both applications be refused in accordance with Section 61F of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

The Council considers that approving the submitted forum application will not enhance community relations in this part of the borough, as the forum has not been supported by the wider community in Stamford Hill.
