Tell us what you love about your neighbourhood

This Characterisation Study for Havering is part of the refresh for our Local Plan, which was adopted in 2021 and now needs updating, as required by the planning inspectorate. 

In the survey, we will ask you your views on the areas where you live or work.  If you are studying, then also please tell us about the area where you study.

You can find a link to our Local Plan at the bottom of this page, or please click Here 

We have updated this survey with some additional information, but we have not changed the questions.  We have also extended the closing date to 19 May 2023.

Why your views matter

The information you provide in this short survey will help us to understand what contributes to the local character in our borough and how we can shape future development to make sure we continue to protect and strengthen our local communities.
