In considering the proposal to create a parish council for Spitalfields & Banglatown, you will need to weigh up the benefits of other models of community engagement and involvement and the benefits of having a parish council either alongside, or instead of, those arrangements. These could include, but are not restricted to, neighbourhood planning forums, residents or community associations, neighbourhood management or civic forums. The approach to community governance in the area could include a greater role for the two existing neighbourhood planning forums in Spitalfields and East Shoreditch. Neighbourhood forums are community groups that are designated to take forward neighbourhood planning in areas without parishes.
What sets parish councils apart from these other kinds of governance is the fact they are an elected tier of local government and possess specific powers. You will need to consider whether a parish council is something you feel would most benefit the area or whether other options could provide greater benefits.
