Camden Rd hostel redevelopment

Closes 22 Dec 2023

Opened 9 Mar 2022


The London Borough of Camden is redeveloping the existing hostel accommodation at 248-250 Camden Rd so that it can accommodate homeless families.

The redevelopment will provide 39 new temporary homes for families, an external stairwell, rear balconies to all levels; erection of 2 x single storey garden buildings; installation of plant equipment, parking access arrangements, tree and landscaping works. The building will be 4-6 storey in height, plus a basement.

Planning consent was granted on 11th May 2021.

The Council have now procured Goody Demolition to demolish the existing buildings. The new buildings will be constructed by a different contractor who will be a specialist in offsite manufacturing. We are currently procuring this contractor.

Join the 248-250 Camden Road Community Working Group?
A Community Working Group helps bring together the views or concerns of the community. The Camden Road Community Working Group has been formed of residents, businesses and representatives from key local groups. Goody Demolition attend to answer demolition-related questions.

The next meeting will take place once the scaffolding is up (hopefully mid-August) at 5.30pm. 

The number of members is limited. Our aim is to prioritise people living closest to the development. This forum provides an opportunity for the community to feedback any concerns and receive regular project updates.
