Welcome to Adel Neighbourhood Forum

The purpose of the Adel Neighbourhood Forum, which is a recognised body of local volunteers, is to give Adel Residents a voice on homes and housing development and the issues arising from such developments on Schools, Transport & Traffic, Landscape, Heritage, Shops and Community Services and local amenities.

The Forum has been working for a long time to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan for the area and this is now in the final stages of preparation before being submitted to the Council for adoption.   A formal Pre-Submission Consultation is now underway and more details can be found on the Neighbourhood Plan page.  This details the series of Consultation Drop-in Events we will be running and explains where you can see a copy of the draft Plan and how to send comments to us.  We hope that many people in the area will let us know their views so that we can be sure that the Plan fully reflects stakeholders’ opinions. 

There are six policies in the Plan as defined below;
Natural and Built Heritage (NBH)
Character and Design (CD)
Housing and Homes (H)
Community facilities and Green Space and Schools (CFGS)
Retail and Business (RB)
Highways and Traffic (HT).

We hope you will be pleasantly surprised to see the variety, type and location of shops and services in Adel under the Shops and Services section.

Check out the links to our excellent primary schools and local sports and social initiatives and facilities in the Schools and Organisations section. This section also includes includes everything from our grade one listed attractions to local organisations such as Friends of Lawnswood Cemetery and Adel Horticultural Society.
