FITZWEST

NEIGHBOURHOOD FORUM

Do you live or work in Fitzrovia West (west of Cleveland Street
and Charlotte Street) and care about safeguarding our unique environment?

FitzWest was designated a Business Neighbourhood Forum by Westminster City Council in 2015 and over 200 local people and businesses have joined.  This designation was extended for another five years in February 2020. The Forum has prepared a plan for the neighbourhood, targeting housing, enterprise, transport, air quality – and much more based on consultation with both residents and businesses.  And, now we need your involvement too!

If you live or work within the red line, or you are part of an organisation that works within the area, you are welcome to join the Forum.  Membership is free and will qualify you to be involved in the plan as it comes to fruition. In the final stage, all businesses and residents are invited to vote in a referendum on the plan.  If you would like to be involved, just fill in the application form here.

Have Your Say on the FitzWest Neighbourhood Plan

The Forum has submitted revised documentation on the FitzWest Plan and Westminster City Council has arranged a 10-week consultation period from 26th May to 4th August 2020.
 
We encourage all residents and businesses based in the area to read the Plan and submit their comments to the Council by the closing date.
 
The Plan’s main objectives are to integrate new development into the heritage of the area, create more affordable housing, support small shops and businesses, improve the environment and particularly air quality, promote greening through tree planting, green roofs and creating healthy streets by encouraging walking and cycling.
 
The draft Plan and supporting documentation are available on our Neighbourhood Plan page
 
For full information on the consultation process click here:  www.westminster.gov.uk/np-fitzrovia-west
 
 
After this consultation stage, an Examiner appointed by the Council will review all the evidence and recommend any further changes to the Plan. A referendum will follow for both residents on the electoral roll and business rate payers.
 
All Invited……….
 
We are planning a public meeting in July to discuss issues of greatest concern in the area. Full details to follow.
