Tybalds Square landscaping survey

Planning application for Tybalds regeneration

The Tybalds Regeneration Development team are now preparing to submit a planning application to the Camden Planning Committee, hopefully by the end of June 2021.  

Once the planning application has been submitted and accepted, the plans will be published on the Camden Planning website. You will be able to use the Search tool to find the application: https://planningrecords.camden.gov.uk 

Residents and the wider public will be able to comment formally on the regeneration proposals as part of the planning process. For more information, visit: www.camden.gov.uk/commenting-planning-application.

Background to the latest proposals 

Since January 2019, Camden Council’s Community Investment Programme development team have been working with estate residents, the Tybalds Residents Association, the wider local community and the Green Space and Environmental Services teams to develop proposals to deliver new homes and landscaping improvements on the Tybalds estate additional to the proposed Better Homes programme of repairs and renewals. As a result of feedback from residents we have made significant changes to the original proposals. 

What is now proposed for Tybalds estate regeneration?

Key aspects of the latest proposals are:

  • 56 new homes, including 50% affordable housing, comprising: 16 homes for Camden social rent and 12 affordable homes delivered by a housing association.
  • 28 new-build homes and one plot of land to be sold on an outright basis to fund the redevelopment scheme
  • New landscaping across the estate including significant landscaping improvements to Tybalds Square
  • Improved access to some existing blocks
  • A purpose-built community centre with two hall spaces
  • No one will have to move out of their home during the construction period.
  • A Local lettings plan which will initially ring-fence new rented homes for Tybalds residents using Camden's choice-based lettings priorities.

Formal consultation

A formal consultation ran from 25 February to 30 June 2020.  All Tybalds residents and stakeholders from the wider Holborn and Bloomsbury community were invited to examine and comment on the latest design proposals. Additionally, we posted out a landscaping survey to all Tybalds households to gather more specific data about residents' views on landscaping, planting and fencing on the estate.

Please visit the Tybalds regeneration - Formal consultation page for more information about the formal consultation. 

What happens next?

If planning permission is granted we aim to begin construction and landscaping on the estate in late 2022. On this timescale, we anticipate that the regeneration would be completed around Autumn 2024.
