Issues & Options Consultation, Newham Local Plan Review - LBN Planning Policy

London Borough of Newham

This work deserves an award for its successful and meaningful engagement.

The various innovative methods used significantly increased the quantity and range of stakeholders who responded: creating a growing pool of interested and empowered stakeholders, and providing invaluable insights to shape the Plan. The consultation outreach – 5000 comments from almost 400 representors, 74% of which were residents – is a significant step-change from the consultation on the adopted Plan, which received 46 comments, of which four were from residents. As a result, this consultation was chosen to inform the Council’s Resident Engagement Framework, influencing engagement and co-production activity across the Council.
