Euston Area Plan sets standard for transformational Euston development

Camden Council adopted the Euston Area Plan (EAP) on Monday 26 January– creating a planning framework for regeneration of the Euston area that will benefit the local community and London as a whole.

The EAP sets policies and guidance for future developments in the area - whether High Speed 2 (HS2) goes ahead or not.

These policies propose the creation of:

  • 2,800 to 3,800 new homes, with affordable and family housing to be cornerstones of development plans
  • 7,700 to 14,100 new jobs in knowledge based, research and creative sectors to grow out of up to 280,000sqm of space dedicated to economic purposes
  • A world class transport interchange at Euston Station with sustainable onward travel options to meet increased passenger demands
  • Education and health facilities and new open spaces to complement larger scale developments to foster Euston’s community feel and enhance its existing character.

Council approved the EAP after Camden’s Cabinet and the Mayor of London adopted the plan on Wednesday 21 January.

You can view the adopted Euston Area Plan on the EAP website.

The Government is set to reveal plans for a new Euston Station in March.
