Lambeth’s consultation on Community consultation

Responses must be received by Tuesday 14 April 2015 at 5pm.

No need to read all 33 pages of the document (see link in Angela Lewis’s letter below), the proposed changes to the consultation are outlined in the accompanying letter – download letter (Word Doc) . One of the main proposed changes is to scrap the sending of notifications to the approximately 1000 households deemed to be affected by a proposed development (except those directly adjacent to it) because of the cost. This seems to make a certain amount of sense.

There is no excuse however, for not sending notifications to those on the  Lambeth list of Consultees, i.e.stakeholders such as  KOV Forum,  Friends of Vauxhall Park, The Vauxhall Society, Vine Housing Co-op etc . The list exists so that consultees can engage the community on Lambeth’s behalf.  Unfortunately most recently in the case of 22-29 Albert Embankment none of those of these consultees seem to have received any notification at all, and were therefore unable to adequately comment on the development.

Please ask for those on Lambeth’s  List of Consultees to be notified of proposed developments in the area.“Dear Sir/Madam

Please find attached a letter download letter (Word Doc) outlining details on Lambeth Council’s consultation on the draft revised Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) for planning matters.

Should you wish to make comments on the SCI, please feel free to use the consultation questionnaire, which together with the SCI, can be found on our website www.lambeth.gov.uk/planningmatters.

Responses must be received by Tuesday 14 April 2015 at 5pm.
