Draft Vision Statement


The Soho Neighbourhood Area is a unique and important part of London with a distinguished heritage. The proposed Soho Neighbourhood Plan will enable development which reinforces Soho’s reputation for creativity, diversity and tolerance. These characteristics are demonstrated in many ways, for example through the range of businesses, from sole traders to big household names, through its varied and strong residential communities and through its diverse culture and entertainment offer. The plan will protect this diverse mix and also enable some further growth which sustainably enhances what is already a complexly developed area.

This statement was adopted as a working document by the Forum Steering Group, 09.12.15.

In preparing and finalising our draft neighbourhood plan we will have many opportunities to revisit this draft vision and amend it in the light of growing experience but it sets down the aspirations of the Steering Group who are charged with guiding the process.
