The Hampstead Neighbourhood Plan will finally go to the polls during a referendum on June 21.
If approved by the public, it will become part of planning law alongside the Camden Local Plan.
The vote will be run by Camden Council in the same way as an election. The single polling station will be at Burgh House, New End Square, NW3 1LT.
The Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum has been working on the document for five years, with “intensive” discussions taking place with homeowners and tenants, community groups and businesses.
It sets out policy to protect Hampstead’s heritage and envionment, as well as addressing traffic, transport, economy, housing and community.

If approved, anyone making a planning application will have to take these policies into account – as well as Camden Council when it makes a decision on whether to approve a development.
