Have your say on the draft Holborn Vision and Urban Strategy

Camden Council are undertaking public consultation on a draft of the Holborn Vision and Urban Strategy. The consultation is now open and will run until Wednesday 3 July 2019.

Holborn is a key growth area for Camden and is going through a time of significant development and change. With planned future developments, investment in transport infrastructure and a changing economy there is the opportunity to coordinate investment to deliver new homes, jobs and a dramatically improved environment for the benefit of Holborn’s communities.

The Vision and Urban Strategy sets out the Council’s vision, key objectives and guidance that can help shape the future of Holborn.

Councillor Danny Beales, Cabinet Member for Investing in Communities and an Inclusive Economy
“Holborn is experiencing a time of significant change. The Council is seeking to work with our partners, developers and the community to achieve the highest quality of development and environment that benefits all our communities.

“The consultation will run for six weeks to Wednesday 3 July and is open to local residents, businesses, workers, community groups and everyone else with an interest in the area.” 
Councillor Danny Beales, Cabinet Member for Investing in Communities and an Inclusive Economy
