Your community needs you!

There are a number of ways in which you can become involved in neighbourhood planning in your area.

1) Join South Bank & Waterloo Neighbours

The group is 400 strong and rising.  Members come from all walks of life, and many have limited time to spare.  Joining the Forum is free and your membership does not require you to attend meeting after meeting – you can get as involved as you want to.

We are however seeking people with specific skills to help develop the plan on a voluntary basis.  We need:

  • Copywriters
  • Community liaison volunteers
  • Events managers
  • Planning policy professionals

If you fit the bill and have a little time to spare, please get in touch.

Also, if you live or work outside the area (check HERE) but are interested in helping or just keeping in touch with the neighbourhood plan, you can become an associate member.

2) Come to one of our events

We have just finished a season of thematic events which were aimed at understanding what the community feels about a range of subjects.  However, if you weren’t able to make any of the events, don’t despair – the conversation continues in the next few months as we split into thematic groups and begin to develop the objectives for the plan.

3) Let us know your ‘burning issues’

You can also join in the debate online by telling local people what you think are the good and bad points of the area – what needs fixing, preserving, changing, or introducing to secure our future as a nice neighbourhood in which to live and work.  Just visit the ‘burning issues‘ bit of the website and leave your thoughts.
