Fairview Homes scheme in New Malden

Fairview Homes gave a presentation on the large proposed housing scheme in New Malden

Fairview’s first consultation took place in October 2018. Fairview has since evaluated all comments and feedback from local residents, community groups and Kingston Council.

Fairview have now revised their plans following a design workshop in January which invited residents to directly feed into the design of the scheme. This exhibition shows the new plans and they are keen to once again hear your feedback, prior to the submission of a planning application in May.

Neighbourhood Planning was originally introduced by the Localism Act 2011 and is a right which communities in England can choose to use.  By establishing a Neighbourhood Forum of people elected from the local area,  Neighbourhood Planning provides the opportunity for communities to set out a positive vision for the future development of their neighbourhood in ways that meet identified local need and makes sense to the people that live and work there.

Diane talked about the take up locally in Kingston, regionally in London and nationally in England, allowing more than 700 communities with made plans the opportunity to take back control over community development.
