The government sets down rules for neighbourhood planning and this is our version of those rules, lodged with Birmingham City Council. They can be updated as we go through the process if voted through by the forum, but they must always comply with the government’s rules which include having at least 21 members including one local business, one local resident and one elected member.
This is the decision-making body made from local volunteers. The membership can be varied at suitable points, but anyone can get involved in helping to prepare the JQ plan.
This closely resembles the plan lodged with the city council, but after public consultation was amended by the council to include the Crimean Gardens on Sandpits/Summer Hill Terrace. The forum wholeheartedly endorses this change.
