Draft Site Allocations Local Plan

Closed 27 Mar 2020

Opened 13 Feb 2020


Camden is growing, and it’s essential we respond to that growth in a way that benefits our whole community. That’s why Camden Council is developing a new Site Allocations Local Plan for Camden.  The Plan identifies a number key development sites and areas across the borough and sets out how they should be developed in the future, ensuring that they are planned for in a way that respects the local character of the surrounding area and meets the needs of local communities and businesses.

Once adopted this Plan will replace policies in the 2013 Site Allocations Plan and be used alongside other policies in Camden’s Development Plan to assess new development proposals on key sites and areas.

Why We Are Consulting

Following approval by Cabinet in November 2019 Cabinet we are now consulting on the draft Site Allocations Local Plan document.

The process for preparing Local Plans includes a number of statutory stages including at least two formal rounds of public consultation. This is the first formal consultation on the Site Allocations Local Plan.

We hope you’ll share your thoughts and feedback on the Plan so we can
ensure it reflects the needs of our community.
