London Neighbourhood Action Plans

London's Neighbourhood Action Plans

A neighbourhood plan is a written document that identifies the priorities of a defined area.  It also provides practical actions that will result in an improved neighbourhood.  A neighbourhood plan does three essential things.  It provides a vision of what you would like your neighbourhood to look like; it sets out clear goals to achieve that vision; and it gives you an action plan to reach those goals.

A Neighbourhood Action Plan developed by residents, can achieve the following results:

  • Increased the knowledge of the neighbourhood, the community and the programs available;
  • Increased opportunities for people to participate in a wide range of recreational, social and educational activities;
  • Increased opportunities for community members to be involved and engaged in their neighbourhood (reduced isolation);
  • Stronger community leadership for the long-term; and,
  • A stronger and more vibrant neighbourhood where all individuals feel safe and proud to live in.

Kipps Lane:  In 2010, a group of residents (Kipps Lane and Community Group) formed to implement their Neighbourhood Action Plan and continue to build a stronger neighbourhood.  This group meets regularly and welcomes new members.  For more information email the chair, Fern Patterson.

Argyle:  In 2012, resident leaders formed a steering committee to develop a vision and 5 priorities  for the Argyle neighbourhood.  Over several months they prepared to engage the residents and stakeholders to solicit feedback and input prior to the development of a resident-led Neighbourhood Action Plan. Implementation is well underway.  For more information, visit the Discover Argyle website.
