The Borough Briefing series provides a platform for local authorities to talk about some of the key issues affecting communities and neighbourhoods, creating a forum for promoting future plans of areas undergoing change and providing the wider industry valuable insight into the borough’s priorities.
 
In this Borough Briefing Westminster updated us on its plans to reinvent the Oxford Street District to support recovery of the city and ensure its long term successful future. There was also a policy update with an overview of key policy changes including their newly adopted City Plan 2019-2049 and forthcoming guidance on the environment, setting out how this will support ambitions to tackle the climate emergency. As well as an update on the draft new strategy to widen participation and promote early engagement in the planning process for local communities.
