Tybalds regeneration programme - Information page

Closes 31 Mar 2022

Opened 12 Feb 2019


Background to the latest proposals 

Camden Council’s Community Investment Programme development team have been working with 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.

Since January 2019 we have been working with estate residents, the Tybalds Residents Association and with local people to develop the regeneration and new homes proposals prior to submitting a planning application.  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:

  • 28 new Council homes on the estate, including 18 social housing homes and ten 'Camden Living' homes
  • 17 new-build homes and two plots of land would 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 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.

Currrent and previous versions of the design proposals and our regeneration newsletters can be downloaded from the 'Related documents' section below.

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?

A report wil be be submitted to a meeting of the Cabinet of Camden Council in December 2020 detailing the proposed scheme and asking the Cabinet to consider whether the project should be taken forward. If approved, we will be aiming to submit a planning application in late December 2020/ January 2021.

Construction and landscaping would not begin until February 2022 at the earliest. On this timescale, we anticipate that the regeneration would be completed around Spring 2024.
