January 2023: Consultation on the Construction Management Plan (CMP) for Phase One of Tybalds Regeneration 

After years of design work, the contractor Quinn London Ltd is scheduled to begin construction on Phase One of the Tybalds regeneration programme on 13 March 2023! 

A Consultation on the draft Construction Management Plan for Phase One of the Tybalds regeneration programme ran from 6 - 20 January 2023. Thank you to all the Tybalds residents and local people who commented on the CMP draft.. 

We have now submitted the CMP to the Planning Department for approval. They are liaising with Quinn London to finalise details of deliveries and vehicle access.

What is a Construction Management Plan (CMP)?

The CMP for Tybalds regeneration is an important document. It includes details of how building works will be organised and how the impact of construction on local residents and organisations will be minimised, such as eg. the site set-up, hours of work, noise and air quality monitoring and liaison with residents, local organisations and other local contractors. 

Where can I read the draft CMP?

The CMP Consultation drafts and appendices are available as downloads from the 'Related' section at the bottom of this page.

Some milestones in development of the current Tybalds regeneration programme

2017 Previous plans for Tybalds regeneration were cancelled due to lack of financial viability.

January 2019+: Camden Council’s Community Investment Programme development team began 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 Better Homes programme of repairs and renewals. As a result of feedback from residents, significant changes have been made to the original 2019 regeneration proposals. 

25 Feb – 30 June 2020:  A formal consultation invited all Tybalds residents and stakeholders from the wider Holborn and Bloomsbury community to examine and comment on the latest design and landscaping proposals for regeneration.  Please visit the Tybalds regeneration - Formal consultation page for more information about the formal consultation. 

24 March 2021: Camden Cabinet approval to proceed received.

2 Aug 2021: Application for planning permission submitted. Application reference: 2021/3580/P can be viewed through the Camden Planning web portal - https://planningrecords.camden.gov.uk.
