In what would appear to be a first the Norland Conservation Society in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) has applied to become the first neighbourhood forum under the Localism Act. And hot on their heels are Faringdon in the Vale of White Horse vying to become the first parished area to be officially designated a neighbourhood planning area.

The Norland Conservation Society is also among wave 5 of the Government’s frontrunners, but unless you know better, even among this select band, this is the first fully fledged application we have come across under the new system. 

The Norland consultation is going to run until the 22nd of May 2012, and the Faringdon until 31st of May 2012.

If this whets your appetite to become a neighbourhood planning area read our guides on how to make an application for parished and non-parished areas.

And if you are still wondering if it is worth all the effort ponder this, or sample our low cost training.
