Belgravia Neighbourhood Plan

Find out about the Belgravia Neighbourhood Plan and planning applications within the Belgravia neighbourhood area.

In accordance with Regulation 20 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, Westminster City Council formally 'made' (adopted) the Belgravia Neighbourhood Plan on Thursday, 7 March 2024. It is therefore now part of the statutory Development Plan for Westminster. It will be used alongside the council's documents and the Mayor's London Plan to determine Belgravia Neighbourhood Area applications.

The Belgravia Neighbourhood Plan includes policies on a range of matters, including character, heritage, design, sustainability, land use, community uses, major development sites and the environment.

Hard copies are available for inspection upon request at council offices at 64 Victoria Street, London, SW1E 6QP. Please email [email protected] to arrange an appointment.

Before adoption, the Plan was subject to public consultation, independent examination and local referendum. Further details of these stages can be found below.


To meet the requirements of the Localism Act 2011, a referendum was held on Thursday, 22 February 2024.

The referendum question was: "Do you want Westminster City Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Belgravia to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?"

94% of those voting voted in favour of the Plan, with a turnout of 14.82%.

Decision Statement

On Monday, 18 December 2023, the council decided to accept all of the Examiner's recommended modifications to the draft plan and proceed to a referendum of residents. A copy of the Decision Statement can be viewed below:


The draft Belgravia Neighbourhood Plan and associated documents were formally submitted by the Belgravia Neighbourhood Forum to the council for consultation in May 2023. Regulation 16 consultation on the draft plan ran from June to July 2023.  

Following consultation, the council appointed Ms Jill Kingaby BSc (Econ) MSc MRTPI as independent Examiner for the draft Belgravia Neighbourhood Plan in late July 2023.

The Examiner considered the draft plan and all submission documents, as well as all representations received, and concluded that subject to the modifications set out in the final Examiner Report, the Plan meets the required statutory tests (for example, the 'Basic Conditions') and can therefore proceed to the referendum stage. The receipt of the Examiner Report on 8 December 2023 formally concluded the examination of the draft Belgravia Neighbourhood Plan. The Examiner's Report can be viewed below:
