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. Policies have been developed with input from residents, from the initial draft policies survey (March 2014), which led to the Vision and Objectives, followed by informal policies feedback and, most recently, the Regulation 14 consultation.
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 the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (MHCLG) 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.

Draft Policies Feedback
A very good level of feedback was received from the first Regulation 14 consultation. Completed online surveys were submitted by 74 respondents, in addition to letters from Historic England, Thames Water, the GLA, Camden Council and TfL.
All comments have been addressed and the policies restructured, following advice by planning consultants, Urban Vision. Subsequent to the further Regulation 14 consultation, 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.
The Forum is now reviewing and taking account of all further comments received for preparation of the 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.
