Putney Society open meeting for Members and friends
Members will probably remember Society meetings in the last three years where suggestions about new developments in Putney have been aired. Some of the potential developments sites have now been given planning permission, some are still prospects. We also have proposals for new schools coming along.
This meeting will start by giving Members an update on the status of major local developments.
You will also have almost certainly heard of the new Localism Act and the concept of local people having more opportunity to shape their local environment through Neighbourhood Groups creating Neighbourhood Plans.
We are therefore fortunate to have two very knowledgeable visiting speakers who will talk about the subject of Localism with particular emphasis on Neighbourhood Groups and Plans.
The first is Mr Peter Eversden who is the Chairman of the London Forum of Amenity Societies. Peter and his team have been closely tracking the development of the Localism Bill as it became an Act and will provide an insight into the opportunities that it provides as well as an insight into what other London amenity societies are doing. Our second speaker will be Mr Martin Howell who has spoken to the Society on previous occasions. He is Group Planner - Policy and Information responsible for planning policy at Wandsworth Borough Council. Martin will provide an insight into WBC’s developing position on Localism and Neighbourhood planning in particular.
There will be an opportunity to discuss the issues arising
