St Philip’s Marsh Neighbourhood Forum is usually called St Philip’s Form and is a registered charity. Membership is open to anyone who lives or works in this neighbourhood. St Philip’s Marsh will develop a neighbourhood plan that gives it direct power to develop a shared vision for our neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of the local area. The forum 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.
