Designation of Norwich Over the Wensum Neighbourhood Forum


An application was submitted to the council by Norwich Over the Wensum neighbourhood group for it be formally designated as a neighbourhood forum. 

Section 61F of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended by Schedule 9 Part 1 of the Localism Act 2011) provides a local planning authority with the power to designate an organisation or body as a neighbourhood forum for a designated neighbourhood area.

Designation decision notice

The designation will cease to have effect after five years from the date of approval.

The forum is authorised to act in relation to the designated neighbourhood area.
