A Dartmouth Park community group has won a local referendum to establish a neighbourhood plan.

1,040 people (88 per cent of respondents) voted to establish the Dartmouth Park Neighbourhood Plan which aims to ensure local voices are represented during planning developments.

The Dartmouth Park Neighbourhood Forum (DPNF) - a group of local volunteers - has developed the plan for five years alongside local residents and businesses.

Votes were collected on February 6 at polling stations in Highgate Road Chapel and Highgate Library.

Camden Council confirmed to the Ham&High the neighbourhood plan will now be adopted following the vote and used alongside its own planning documents when consulting on developments in the area.

It will be formally adopted at a full council meeting on March 2.
