Though HCA, plans are afoot for a new Holborn Neighbourhood Forum. They're going to submit an application for designation as a Neighbourhood Forum and develop a Neighbourhood Plan under the terms of the Localism Act 2011.
Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. They are able to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided, and grant planning permission for the new buildings they want to see go ahead. Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to ensure that they get the right types of development for their community where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.
