Grove Park Neighbourhood Forum and Area

The Mayor of Lewisham has designated Grove Park as a neighbourhood area and has also designated a neighbourhood forum for this area.

Application for the redesignation of Grove Park neighbourhood forum

A local community group in the Grove Park area has made an application seeking the re-designation of a designation of a neighbourhood forum for Grove Park neighbourhood forum.

The proposed area covers part of the borough of Lewisham. If the application is approved, no other organisation or body may be designated for that area until this designation expires or is withdrawn.

Information about the application

The supporting documents for this application are below. Please note that the list of supporters is not available for inspection by the public for data protection reasons.

Comment on the application

We are holding a consultation from 13 July 2020 to 24 August 2020.

To make a representation relating to the neighbourhood forum application you can:

Grove Park Draft Plan Submission

Grove Park Neighbourhood Forum have submitted to us its proposed Neighbourhood Plan. We are now seeking views and comments on the draft plan from residents, business owners and other interested stakeholders.

Please note that the documents above are not fully accessible. You can get accessible text-only versions by request by contacting info@grovepark.org.uk.

The consultation will run from the 1 November 2019–10 January 2020.

All comments should be received by the 10 January 2020 and be sent via e-mail to planning.policy@lewisham.gov.uk, or post to Planning Policy, 5th Floor Laurence House, Catford Road, Catford, SE6 4RU.

What happens next?

Once the consultation has finished we will forward the responses submitted to an independent examiner. The examiner will assess if the plan meets the statutory requirements outlined in the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012. If the draft plan passes the independent examination, we will organise a referendum to give the local community a final say on whether the plan should be used in determining planning applications in the designated neighbourhood area.


All queries regarding membership of the Forum and the activities of the Forum should be made directly to Stephen Kenny at info@grovepark.org.uk or on 020 8857 7980.
