Our February-March 2021 Community Survey is currently closed, while we reflect what the Responses are telling us. In the meantime, we’d love to hear from you
About the Forum
The Sydenham Hill Ridge Neighbourhood Forum, SHRNF, is a community-led organisation which is working to keep the Ridge area an attractive and vibrant place to live whilst ensuring the conservation of the woodland and open green spaces which are so vital to keeping the Ridge's distinctive character and environment.
If you live in, work, or volunteer, in our Sydenham Hill Ridge Neighbourhood Area, you are entitled to have your say in the formation of the Neighbourhood Plan and to become a member of the Forum. Please join us and get involved (see "GET INVOLVED" on the right-hand side of this page.
SHRNF and SHRNA are a designated Neighbourhood Forum and a designated Neighbourhood Area respectively. Our two boroughs are Lewisham and Southwark.
The Localisation Act (2011) provided a legal framework for local communities to have greater influence on planning matters in their own areas. SHRNF started the “designation stage” in the second half of 2018, and Lewisham and Southwark Councils “designated” the Neighbourhood Forum and Neighbourhood Area in February 2020. SHRNF is now working on a Neighbourhood Plan so local people may influence future developments.
