You’re Invited to the Pimlico Forum Exhibition, 8th Nov

Pimlico Neighbourhood Forum was set up to develop a Neighbourhood Plan that will influence how development will happen in Pimlico. The Pimlico Forum is now setting out its thinking about how the area might develop in the future. It is seeking views of residents and local businesses to help develop the plan to the next stage.

There will be a drop in consultation event on Wednesday 8 November 3-8pm at Dryburgh Hall in Alderney Street, SW1V 4ET with a small exhibition.

Pimlico Neighbourhood Forum: Summer 2017 Update

The Pimlico Neighbourhood Forum is developing a Neighbourhood Plan in order to influence planning decisions in the local area. After the Plan is adopted by Westminster Council it will  shape decisions in the area.

What is a Neighbourhood Plan ?

The Plan is a planning document that will influence what planning applications for new buildings can be passed, aspects of their design, what conditions for example on affordable housing will be applied, where residential or commercial development can take place and it will also affect how certain taxes (the “Community Infrastructure Levy”) are spent in the area.

The Plan has to be in general conformity with National planning policies and with Westminster’s Strategic planning policy, but there is considerable scope within this and it will add detail to some of the gaps in existing policies.

Nine Elms: Cycle Bridge Resurrected, Affordable Housing Slashed

Wandsworth Council is putting on a series of Public Exhibitions to breathe new life into The Nine Elms Cycle Bridge which many had thought to be dead in the water after failing to gain any support from The Mayor of London and following Westminster City Council’s stinging examination of the proposition.

Please go, have a look and make sure you have your say about it. There will be three exhibitions North and South of the River. Details from the Cycle Bridge Website:

Exhibitions explaining the project are being held on both sides of the river to update local residents on the status of the project and the work that is currently being undertaken and to give them the opportunity to explore the project in more detail, ask questions and provide feedback at this early stage.

The exhibitions will be taking place at the following dates and times:

Friday 30th June, 2.30pm – 6.30pm
St Saviour’s Church Hall,
St. George’s Square, Lupus St,
SW1V 3QW

Saturday 1st July, 10 am – 3 pm
Pimlico Academy, The Auditorium,
Lupus St, Pimlico,

Report: Pimlico Forum Meeting, March 2017

The second meeting of the Pimlico Neighbourhood Forum took place on Tuesday 21 March 2017 at St Saviour’s Hall, Pimlico.

Present were the Steering Group as well as Councillors: Nickie Aiken, Christabel Flight, Jacqui Wilkinson, Angela Harvey, Shamim Talukder and Murad Gassanly and 67 Pimlico residents.

The meeting approved Andrew McCarthy, a retired solicitor living in Pimlico, as an additional member of the Steering Group. It also agreed that the Forum should be incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee, a corporate form that limits the liability of members to £1 and the necessary changes to the Constitution will be put to the next meeting for formal approval.

The Committee has been asking local residents groups what they like about Pimlico, as well as what would make it better and what the priorities should be for the Neighbourhood Plan. It has also been finding out from the most recent Census data the characteristics of the households in Pimlico:
