Helping deliver the Highgate Neighbourhood Plan

We’re the Highgate Neighbourhood Forum

The HNF is an independent body, run by a committee of locals on behalf of the community to ensure we have a say in the future of our neighbourhood and that we all benefit from these changes. Everyone who lives in the Plan area is a automatically a member of the Forum.

The HNF gives us more control and say over planning decisions that affect housing, shops and other developments. We also have initiatives around open spaces, economic activity and our high streets, social support, sustainability and transport.

In 2017 our Neighbourhood Plan became integrated into planning law. The Plan provides a blueprint and has a range of policies and projects. Because the HNF is a statutory consultee, Camden and Haringey Council are obliged to consult with us when planning applications are submitted for the Highgate area.

We are also involved in how the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is spent in our neighbourhood.
