About

Welcome

Thank you for visiting the site of the Redington Frognal Neighbourhood Forum, referred to as the RedFrog Forum.

What is a Neighbourhood Forum?

Neighbourhood Forums are community based groups designated to take forward neighbourhood planning in areas without a parish council. It is the role of the local planning authority to agree who should be the Neighbourhood Forum for the neighbourhood area.

RedFrog Neighbourhood Forum is recognised as the Neighbourhood Forum for the Redington Frognal area under Localism Legislation. It is tasked with developing a Neighbourhood Plan which will inform Camden’s decision making on planning applications for the area. The RedFrog Association has been the guiding force in setting up and continuing to support the Forum.

We seek a future for the RedFrog area which preserves its green character and continues to make it home to a wide range of family types and ages. Our vision is a set of principles developed by Redfrog residents to help Camden implement and change its policy according to the needs of our local community. Grants have been secured from Locality to help fund part of the evidence base needed, and specialist consultants employed.

We believe that the Redfrog neighbourhood should celebrate its heritage and history and should continue to be a delightful area to live in.

RedFrog Neighbourhood Plan

Our Neighbourhood Development Plan is currently in draft stage. The fifth draft was submitted to Camden for review in 2018, and the latest Draft Policies document from October 2018 is a consequence of that review, available here:

Draft Neighbourhood Plan_04-12-18

You can read about each of the Draft Policies here, and  information on our Vision & Objectives can be found via the link.

Draft Policies Feedback

What is your view on the Draft Policies? We encourage you to read the full draft Plan and you can make comments on this document by e-mailing the Forum at: redfrogemail@gmail.comAlternatively, you are able to respond by using the on-line survey form:
https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/RedFrogPolicies

The Survey Form helps the Forum with the collation and processing of responses. Please note that any comments you provide can be published in the public domain – while this may identify your name or organisation, addresses and e-mail addresses will not be published. Please also let us know if you wish the Neighbourhood Forum to contact you in the future about the emerging plan.

The survey deadline has been extended and will remain open until Wednesday 23rd January 2019 – please submit your responses by then, as we are very keen to get your feedback.

Next steps

The Forum will review the comments received and take them into account when preparing a final draft Plan. This version of the Plan will be submitted to Camden Council for examination. The examiner will then consider whether the Plan meets the Basic Conditions (statutory tests which all neighbourhood plans must meet) and if it should proceed to a local referendum.

AGM 2018

The RedFrog AGM was held Sunday 28th October, at JW3 Theatre, Finchley Road, London NW3 6ET. A review on the event will be available shortly. Minutes of the AGM are now available here.
