Dozens have say on Highgate Neighbourhood Forum’s vision for community

A community’s vision for the future of their neighbourhood is being put under a microscope at workshops and pub nights.

Dozens discussed a government-approved pressure group’s 15-year plan for Highgate at its first workshop on Saturday at the Highgate Society in South Grove.

The group, called Highgate Neighbourhood Forum, last week published its 100-page plan suggesting ideas for new housing developments and community facilities, whilst preserving the area’s character.

As well as workshops. the forum is also putting on a number of “pub crawls” where members show drinkers the plan.

Chairwoman Rachel Allison said she was pleased at how many were “engaged” with the group’s vision for Highgate.
