Consultation to redesignate our forum

Our group is a formally constituted body under the Localism Act 2011 and every 5 years the group needs to be re-designated.

We have also applied to change the north-west part of our boundary to include a small piece of land to make it align to the new Hackbridge Ward map, but have kept the southern boundary as residents in these roads which fall outside the Hackbridge Ward map have been instrumental in our neighbourhood planning journey.

To do this, we have submitted our applications to Sutton Council, who has now put it out to the public for consultation. The notice of consultation is below:

Notice is hereby given that Sutton Council has received an application from the ‘Hackbridge and Beddington Corner’ Neighbourhood Planning Group’, in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations (as amended), for re-designation as a ‘neighbourhood area’ and ‘neighbourhood forum’. The Council is seeking views on this application until 27 October 2022.

By way of background, Hackbridge and Beddington Corner, whose Neighbourhood Plan was formally adopted following a successful referendum (in 2019), was originally designated in 2012 and then redesignated again 5-years later in 2017. As another 5-years has lapsed it is necessary for the area and forum to be redesignated again.

A copy of the applications for redesignation are available on the website here, including a map of the area it relates to, or are available directly below:

If you would like to comment on either application, please send your views to planningpolicy@sutton.gov.uk or alternatively write to Strategic Planning, Civic Centre, St Nicholas Way, Sutton, SM1 1EA

In addition hard copies are available for inspection at the below locations:

  • Sutton Civic Offices, St Nicholas Way, Sutton SM1 1EA, Monday – Friday: 9am – 5pm
  • Sutton Central Library, St Nicholas Way, Sutton SM1 1EA Monday – Thursday: 9am – 8pm Friday – Saturday: 9am – 5pm, Sunday: 1pm – 4:30pm

Representations should consider whether the neighbourhood area and forum is appropriate to be re-designated. Additional guidance is available online here: https://neighbourhoodplanning.org/toolkits-and-guidance/ 

Representations must be received by 5pm on 27 October 2022
