GCNF Neighbourhood Plan
Greater Carpenters Neighbourhood Plan has its roots in the Carpenters Community Plan produced in 2013 as a bottom up alternative to Newham Council’s plans to demolish the Carpenters Estate. The Carpenters Community Plan was informed by the views of more than half the estate’s households, in meetings, walkabouts and extensive door to door survey.
In 2011/12 legislation gave communities new powers around shaping development in their areas through neighbourhood planning. This led to Carpenters Estate residents reaching out to the wider Greater Carpenters Neighbourhood Area of surrounding residents and businesses.
Since the Greater Carpenters Neighbourhood Forum and Area were designated in July 2015, we have held monthly meetings, some open day events and carried surveys to fund out the views of local people from across the Neighbourhood area.
