Bloomsbury Square Garden – green space improvements

As part of Camden’s Green Space Investment Programme, we are making landscape improvements in Bloomsbury Square Gardens. Design proposals have been prepared by our consultants and we would like to share these with local residents, businesses and other local stakeholders.Please download the design plans below.

The proposals include:

  • New planting along the Southern Perimeter to reduce air/noise pollution.
  • Increasing the variety of planting in the centre and oval beds and introducing shade/drought tolerant species.
  • Colourful and diverse planting to provide seasonal interest, encouraging bees and birds.
  • Wider improvements to bins, benches and provision of level access to grassed areas.
  • Removal of dense planting and hedge in “wildlife area” to increase visibility.

Next Steps

Works on site will begin in October 2018. We will provide further updates on the Garden noticeboards.  We would welcome feedback on the proposals. Deadlne for feedback: Sunday 16th September 2018
