Recognised amenity societies provide a strong voice on planning issues for Westminster residents. Formally recognised societies are consulted on all planning applications within a specified area and sit on the Westminster Amenity Societies Forum (WASF).
This review will help ensure that information the council holds about the recognised amenity societies is correct and that individual societies remain active and representative in a particular area.
If you are an existing recognised amenity society who wishes to continue being consulted on planning applications or if you wish to become a recognised amenity society, please complete the review questionnaire.
If you have any difficulties submitting the form, need it in a different format or have queries about this review, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you no longer wish to be formally recognised as an amenity society, you don't need to answer all questions, but please explain why you no longer wish to be recognised and the name and contact details of the replacement group operating in the area who can take on this role.
Following the review, information will be collated and submitted to the Cabinet Member for the Built Environment for a decision on which societies should be formally recognised.
The council will then publish a list of recognised amenity societies and other consultees on planning applications on the website.
