    About the Plan…

    As part of the 2011 localism act, the Soho Neighbourhood Plan was formed as a business group in 2015, with a steering group made up of 8 residents and 8 businesses.

    The Plan was created grassroots up, via public surveys, policy groups breakfast meetings and direct public engagement in Soho square and Berwick Street market to capture local views over the last 7 years on planning, heritage, culture, night time economy, the environment, housing and more. 

    The Soho Neighbourhood Plan is ready for referendum and public vote.
