Mayfair Neighbourhood Plan

The Mayfair Neighbourhood Plan includes policies on a range of matters including heritage, community uses, retail, commercial, housing, cultural uses, transport and the environment. As it has passed referendum, it now forms part of Westminster’s statutory development plan and will be used alongside the council’s own planning documents and the Mayor’s London Plan in determining planning applications in the Mayfair Neighbourhood Area.

Referendum

To meet the requirements of the Localism Act 2011, a referendum was held on 31st October 2019 at  Dance Works, 16 Balderton Street, London W1K 6TN and The Grosvenor Chapel, South Audley Street, London W1K 2PA. The referendum question was: “Do you want Westminster City Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Mayfair to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?” 

For the residential referendum, 86.03% voted in favour of the plan, and there was a turnout of 13.67%.

For the business referendum, 91.21% voted in favour of the plan, and there was a turnout of 38.4%

A copy of the referendum version of the plan, which incorporates all of the examiner’s modifications as agreed through the council’s Decision Statement on the 11th July 2019, can be viewed below:
