2018 SPN meeting===
In the first part of the meeting, the SPN meeting heard from Prof Kevin Fenton Director of Health & Public Wellbeing at the Council on the development of the new Social Regeneration policy now a strategic policy in the New Southwark Plan (NSP). Philip Waters from the Council Planning Department explained this stage of the NSP consultation which was the formal stage leading to the Examination in Public (EiP) in the second half of 2018. The second half was a workshop about the SPN's approach to examining the NSP and helping people to prepare their comments in the right form. The SPN welcomed the proposed SPN drop-in sessions for this in January, now that the Council had agreed after community representations to extend the comments deadline until 12th February.
