Camden launches new community vision

Camden 2025 has been created in partnership with local residents, organisations, businesses and partners, and sets out what local people have said Camden should be like in 2025.

Thousands of local people came together over a four-month period to discuss Camden’s strengths, challenges, and their ambitions for Camden over the next few years.

From these conversations the borough’s Cabinet members developed a new shared vision for the borough. The vision is something that everyone in Camden can work towards to make the borough a better place for everyone who lives, works and studies here.

Camden 2025 sets out the following five ambitions:

  • In 2025, everyone in Camden should have a place they call home.
  • In 2025, growth in Camden should be strong and inclusive – everyone should be able to access the work that is right for them.
  • In 2025, Camden should be safe, strong and open, and everyone should be able to contribute to their community.
  • In 2025, Camden should be safe, strong and open, and everyone should be able to contribute to their community.
  • In 2025, everyone in Camden should be able to live a healthy, independent life.

Achieving these ambitions will involve the council coming together with Camden’s communities to work in new and innovative ways to explore some of the borough’s biggest issues.

During conversations to develop Camden 2025, air pollution was one of the challenges highlighted that everyone in Camden needs to work together to tackle. To signal the launch, the newly formed Camden Clean Air Partnership, which includes local businesses, campaigners and residents, will meet today at a ‘design day’ to explore practical ideas for how everyone in Camden can work together to tackle air pollution.

In response to Camden 2025, the council has developed a four-year plan, called Our Camden Plan, which sets out how the organisation will support the Camden 2025 ambitions.
