Kentish Town residents hit the streets to shape area
Kentish Town residents have pledged to create new youth services by setting up a pioneering neighbourhood forum.
Hot on the heels of moves in nearby Highgate to create a neighbourhood plan, residents are using new powers given to communities to shape their area.
Volunteers are taking to the streets to ask residents what changes they ant to see.
Caroline Hill, chairwoman of the newly formed Kentish Town Neighbourhood Forum, said: “The neighbourhood plan we are developing is about development as well as heritage that means finding places there could be social housing and community centres.
“With all the cuts here, young people have really nowhere to go. We are going to be looking at that.”
