Pimlico Neighbourhood Plan

More information on Pimlico Neighbourhood Plan and planning applications within the Pimlico neighbourhood area.

Last updated: 27 October 2021

The Pimlico Neighbourhood Plan has been formally submitted by the Pimlico Neighbourhood Forum to the council for consultation. Regulation 16 consultation on the plan ran from 28 June 2021 to 23 August 2021.

The plan includes policies on a range of matters including commercial and mixed-use development, design and heritage, housing and hotels, public realm and environment. If adopted, the plan will become 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 Pimlico Neighbourhood Area. 


The council appointed Ms Jill Kingaby BSc (Econ) MSc MRTPI as independent examiner for the Pimlico Neighbourhood Plan on 15th October 2021. 

The examiner is now considering the draft plan, all submission documents and all representations received. The examination into whether the draft plan meets the ‘Basic Conditions’ has therefore now started and the examination documents are set out in the page below.

Next steps 

The examiner will consider the representations made during the consultation period and determine whether the plan meets the required statutory tests (’Basic Conditions’).

The examiner’s report can recommend one of three main recommendations:

  1. the plan proceeds to referendum
  2. the plan proceeds to referendum with modifications
  3. the plan should not proceed to referendum. Before a neighbourhood plan can proceed to referendum, the council is required to set out its response to each of the examiner’s recommendations and publish a ‘decision statement’.
