Final consultation on the draft Soho Neighbourhood Plan starts!

On Wednesday 17 July 2019, we formally launched formal Regulation 14 consultation on our draft Soho Neighbourhood Plan.

This is an exciting moment for Soho. For the first time the community has developed policies to draw up its own plan. We are now asking you to submit your thoughts!

Click here to complete our online survey and give your views to help shape the final Plan!

The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and is a vital part of gathering feedback on the draft Plan. The questionnaire asks you to give your views on the draft Plan, so that the Plan can be amended and improved to better reflect the views of the whole community.

The consultation is open until 5pm on Wednesday 11 September 2019.

Hard copies of the draft Plan and Executive Summary are also available to view at a number of locations around Soho, including:

  • St Annes’s Parish Office, 55 Dean Street, W1D 6AF
  • Marshall Street Leisure Centre, 15 Marshall Street,    W1F 7EL
  • House of St Barnabas, 1 Greek Street, W1D 4NX
  • Comm Comm UK, 3rd Floor Office, 1 Bourchier Street, W1D 4HX – Available Monday – Friday 10am-4pm. Please call 020 7125 0421 to make an appointment.

If you require the documents in a different format, please do get in touch with the team. Hard copies of the survey are also available on request, please call 0800 772 0475.

We will be hosting and attending a number of events across Soho during the consultation period. Keep up-to-date with events on our website and on social media.

Recommendations and projects

We first started consultation with the local community in 2016 and since then, we have spoken to hundreds of individuals. During this time, there have been many comments and ideas raised, which form part of the Recommendations and Projects section. These topics are important to Soho but are not land use planning matters, therefore are separate to the draft Plan. We are keen that bodies such as Westminster City Council, TfL and the property industry review and address the actions noted.

Next steps

It has been a long journey since our inaugural meeting in July 2015. Once we have analysed all the consultation responses and made any necessary alterations to the draft Plan, we will submit it to Westminster City Council for independent examination.

At the end of the process, there will be referendums of the business and residential communities of Soho. We need your support to ensure that the Plan comes into force. We will keep you updated as we move through the process.
