READ THE FIRST SOWN ANNUAL REPORT
We are delighted to publish the first SoWN Annual Report.
The Chair's Introduction: Welcome to our first annual report on SoWN’s activities in the year following the formal recognition of its status as a Neighbourhood Forum by Lambeth Council in January 2020. Looking back, there must have been a moment - a period of just a few weeks perhaps - when we felt that, while hard work lay ahead, the major formal challenges of compiling a Neighbourhood Plan were behind us and the measures and policies that would flow from its overwhelming approval would in turn attract new members with fresh ideas. Not quite, as it turned out.
In the pages that follow, you will find reports on SoWN’s activities across many fields – despite the stringencies of the pandemic, there is much to be done in the area and SoWN is involved on many fronts. Our status as a statutory consultee on planning matters in the area has involved us at an early stage in many projects. At the same time, Lambeth has appointed staff with specific responsibilities for the area and we liaise with them on a regular basis across a number of fields. But there is still much to be done and if you live or work in the area we would be delighted to hear from you.
