In July 2014, the Crofton Park and Honor Oak Park Neighbourhood Forum (HopCroft Forum) was formally constituted by Lewisham Council to lead on pulling together a Neighbourhood Plan for the designated area. The Forum, under the Localism Act (2011) is granted powers to lead the creation of a Local Neighbourhood Plan.
The forum has a formal constitution which sets out the aims and objectives. Its purpose is promote or improve the social, economic and environmental well-being of the Crofton Park & Honor Oak Park Neighbourhood. We will do this by developing and designing a Local Neighbourhood Plan with policies that stimulate a stronger and more inclusive community.
Membership is voluntary and is open to anyone interested in shaping how the neighbourhood develops. Members must work towards the objectives of the Forum’s constitution. Membership will be inclusive and reflective of the diverse community of the neighbourhood. There are two types of membership:
- Full Member – If you live or work within the designated neighbourhood boundary you can contribute to developing the Neighbourhood Plan and can vote at the Forum AGM.
- Associate Member – This membership is open to anyone who has an interest in the area, who may live just outside the boundary or who regularly visits and cares for the area. An associate member can contribute to the development of the plan, but cannot vote at the AGM.
