Overview

CamdenTown has a vibrant community with a diverse mix of shops, restaurants and businesses.  The Council has made significant improvements to Camden High Street and the nearby Kings Cross development will also bring regeneration benefits to the area.

This project focuses on the area between Camden Town and Kings Cross, aiming to improve connections to the surrounding areas and create safe, attractive streets for those that live in and visit the area.

Camden Council has developed a number of proposals to address the issues identified in the consultation leaflet.  

The proposals are to make the following improvements:

  • Greenland Road & Carol Street - two way cycling and parking improvements;
  • Pratt Street/ Bayham Street - junction upgrade;
  • Pratt Street& Georgiana Street – parking improvements;
  • Plender Street–footway and market improvements, and parking improvements;
  • Crowndale Road–footway widening;
  • St Pancras Way-footway widening and new zebra crossing;
  • Bayham Street & Greenland Street / Randolph Street and Georgiana Street – Car Club bays and electric vehicle charge points;
  • Area wide - 20mph speed limit.

Camden Council has been working with the local community towards improving the streets across the area east of Camden High Street. Together we have identified areas where the streets could be safer and better for everyone.

This consultation leaflet sets out the proposals and how they will affect the area. As a local resident or business, this is your opportunity to let us know what you think.
