    i t can say what sort of development we want to see in Bankside in the future, and how that development can help deliver benefits for our community.

    the Bankside Neighbourhood Plan will makea difference

  • In Bankside that means residents,

    businesses and community

    organisations all working together

    to agree a vision for the future of

    our neighbourhood.

    As well as setting out what we

    want for the future character and

    development of Bankside, the

    Neighbourhood Plan will also be a

    planning policy document that has

    real powers to give direction for our

    area, sitting alongside Southwark

    Councils New Local Plan and the

    Mayors London Plan.

    So what is the Bankside Neighbourhood Plan?

    Your views are important to us so get involved

    t he Governments Localism Act now gives us all the chance to influence how our neighbourhood develops in the future through a Neighbourhood Plan. residents, businesses and community organisations all working together

  • We have lots of long established

    residential and business

    communities, and world famous

    cultural institutions in our

    neighbourhood, and its now also

    the focus for new residential and

    business investment.

    Whilst we need to have more homes

    and jobs, we dont think these

    should be at the expense of the

    special character of Bankside. New

    development in Bankside benefits

    the whole borough, and while we

    welcome this investment it could

    put whats already here under strain.

    What makes Bankside so special for us?

    What do you think? let us know

    b anksides rich history has given us a distinctive mixof buildings, streets andopen spaces. the focus for

    new residential and business investment

  • The forum started to think about

    what a plan for Bankside might say,

    making sure what we all think is

    special now, stays special.

    As the Neighbourhood Plan will

    affect the area where you live or

    work, we want to be sure that what

    goes in the plan is what local people

    and local businesses want.

    With all the new buildings and

    developments, lots of new uses, and

    even more new people living and

    working in Bankside, its important

    to make sure that the future

    planning decisions are right for

    Bankside and us.

  • Included within these are

    improvements to our streets and

    public spaces, and funding local

    employment initiatives. Many of

    these have made a difference to

    local people and groups.

    In future, there will be a new

    Projects List as part of the

    Neighbourhood Plan. Its important

    to find out your ideas now on new

    community projects that have local

    support, and that can make a

    difference in our community.

    l ocal opportunities from development. Over the years,a number of community projects have been funded through developments in Bankside.

  • Once all the ideas have been

    collated from the consultations, and

    have been taken into account, you

    will have a further opportunity to

    comment on the draft plan.

    YOU ALSO GET A VOTEWhats also different about the

    Neighbourhood Plan is that once

    its written Bankside residents and

    businesses can vote on it, probably

    in early 2014. Voting for the

    Neighbourhood Plan will mean local

    opinions will influence the planning

    decisions made by Southwark

    Council on all future developments

    in Bankside. Thats why the

    Neighbourhood Plan needs to

    say what local residents and

    businesses want for Bankside.
