What is the Forum?

The Emsworth  Forum  is an approved Neighbourhood Forum under the Localism Act 2011, which brings together local residents and organisations to a neighbourhood Plan for the future development of Emsworth. The Forum aims to promote the social, economic and environmental well-being of the Emsworth Neighbourhood. Emsworth Forum will develop an Emsworth Neighbourhood Plan with the local Planning Authority, Havant Borough Council, which has been discussed and agreed with local people and organisations and will reflect our vision and aspirations. The Plan will be put to a Referendum of all registered electors in Emsworth and, once approved, will form part of the statutory planning guidelines that developers and the Planning Authority have to take into account when deciding on planning applications.
