Overview

Netley Primary School & Everton Buildings Development, NW1 3EX

Road Safety and Public Realm Improvements

We are seeking your views on the Council’s proposals to improve road safety on the streets surrounding the newly rebuilt Netley Primary School and Everton Buildings located on Stanhope Street and William Road, NW1 3EX.

The Netley development project is one part of a 15 year Community Investment Programme by Camden with local people to identify ways to improve some of the borough’s buildings and estates. This will bring the Council’s schools up to modern standards, provide new homes, and improve community services, streets, parks and public spaces.

The school has been rebuilt with new facilities in time for the autumn term in September 2014. New housing is also being built above the school and improvements made to existing buildings to create a better public realm. The new school and homes also require improvements to the existing streets, especially as the school entrances have moved and because more people will walk to and from the new housing development.

The Council’s traffic engineers have undertaken site visits and agreed with the Netley School project officers to propose a number of changes to the streets which will improve road safety for pupils and parents travelling to and from school, and residents in the area.

We are proposing to widen the footway outside the school and raise the junctions before the school to calm the traffic and provide new crossing points. This will require relocating some residents parking from Stanhope Street to William Road, lowering and slightly moving the zebra crossing and the loss of one tree, but we would aim to replace this loss elsewhere. 

The proposals are illustrated in further detail on the consultation plan and further detailed information on the proposed changes is outlined on the consultation leaflet. Both documents have been uploaded to this webpage in PDF format and the links for these can be found at the bottom of this page.

The Council would like to hear your views on the proposals so you can respond via email or post by FRIDAY 12 DECEMBER 2014. When responding to the consultation please complete the consultation question sheet.
