Neighbourhood Areas in Ealing

A “Neighbourhood Area” is the geographical area that a Neighbourhood Development Plan or a Neighbourhood Development Order will cover.  If your organisation wants to designate a Neighbourhood Area you will need to apply to the Local Planning Authority and provide the following information:

  • A map of your proposed neighbourhood area

  • A statement explaining why the area is appropriate

  • A statement that the organisation making the area application is either a designated forum, or is capable of being such. Further information is available in Section 61F(5) and 61G(2) TCPA 1990 Act of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012

Once you have prepared the information above, please send your application to:

Steve Barton
Planning Policy Manager
Perceval House
4th Floor Planning Policy
14-16 Uxbridge Road
London W5 2HL

Please be aware that the Local Planning Authority must consult on the proposals for a minimum of six weeks and will invite representations. To assess the appropriate area the Local Planning Authority must ensure neighbourhood areas are coherent, consistent and appropriate in planning terms. As well as taking on board comments received from consultation other factors that will be considered might include:

  • any natural or man-made features (such as rivers or mountains, roads, railway lines or canals)
  • catchment areas for current and planned infrastructure and services (e.g. schools)
  • development proposals and allocations and
  • environmental designations
