(NDF) is a resident-led voluntary organisation which was set up by amenity groups, residents' associations and individuals to give local people a stronger voice in the development of the West Hampstead area.
The NDF holds regular public meetings and engages with local people through a variety of events including the annual Jester Festival.
The NDF created the Neighbourhood Development Plan for West Hampstead, which was approved by a local referendum and was formally adopted by Camden Council in 2015.
The NDF’s current priorities include the future of the O2 centre, the redevelopment of 156 West End Lane, the site of the former Camden Council offices, and a campaign to get a lift at West Hampstead tube station.
The NDF works closely with WHAT below
WHAT began in 1973 as a single-issue protest against traffic in and around West Hampstead. But we soon realised ‘traffic’ includes everything: buses, tubes, trains, cars, walking, cycling, road safety, pollution; housing, shops, schools, hospitals, doctors, dentists, pubs, leisure, parks, sport.
Today our aim is still to make West Hampstead a better, safer and more pleasant place for everyone. We’ll act to improve whatever needs attention locally – from trees to Tesco, planning to parking, benches to bins, recycling to rentals.
WHAT lobbies relevant organisations – especially Camden Council – to improve local services. We pursue the bus, train and Tube companies, plus TfL and the GLA, for better public transport. Our voice has become well respected over the years.
WHAT works closely with the NDF above
