Camden Local Plan Review

Closed 13 Jan 2023

Opened 4 Nov 2022


Work has started on the review of the Camden Local Plan 2017 – the Council’s main planning document, which provides the framework for managing development in the borough.

This is your opportunity to shape the future of Camden. To find out more and share your views visit Have Your Say Today - Camden Local Plan Review - Commonplace.

Alongside the Local Plan review, the Council is continuing to progress the update to the Site Allocations Local Plan, which sets out its approach to sites where significant future development is expected. To inform the development of the Site Allocations Local Plan we are also holding a call for sites (including housing, employment and gypsy and traveller sites). To find out more and submit a site visit Have Your Say Today - Site Allocations - Call for Sites - Camden Local Plan Review (

We are also inviting communities in Camden to propose areas of open space for designation in the Plan as Local Green Spaces. To find out more and submit a site visit Have Your Say Today - Site Allocations - Call for Sites - Camden Local Plan Review (

You can also email your responses and comments directly to us at

The engagement on the Local Plan Review is open to the 13th January 2023. Responses should be submitted by 5pm on the 13th January 2023.

Why your views matter

The Local Plan sets out the vision for future development in the borough for the next 5, 10 and 15 years and includes the planning policies to help achieve this. It identifies how many new homes, jobs and services are needed to support our growing population, and where and how they should be provided. The Local Plan has an important role in shaping how our places look and feel, promoting inclusion, reducing inequality, enhancing the environment, tackling climate change and securing sustainable neighbourhoods.

We are keen to hear your views on the current Local Plan and understand how you think our policies could go further in addressing key issues, such as climate change, the provision of affordable housing, the changing role of Camden’s centres, housing delivery, job creation and economic development.

This is your opportunity to help shape the future planning policies for Camden.

What happens next

Once we have reviewed all the feedback from this engagement and updated our evidence base to support the Local Plan, we will produce a Draft Local Plan. This will then be published for consultation later in 2023. The timetable for the Local Plan review is available to view here.
