Have your say on the Kentish Town Planning Framework

Camden Council are undertaking consultation on a draft-planning framework for Kentish Town.

Kentish Town Regis Road is a key growth area in the borough, identified for comprehensive employment-led redevelopment. It is planned to create a vibrant new neighbourhood with a significant number of new homes, jobs and community facilities that are well integrated with surrounding neighbourhoods.

The planning framework sets out the council’s vision, key objectives and guidance that can help shape the future development of the area to help achieve the best outcome for our communities and the whole borough.

Councillor Danny Beales, Cabinet Member for Investing in Communities
“This is a really exciting opportunity. This large area, situated next to Kentish Town and Hampstead Heath is currently under-used, low-density industrial space, owned by a range of different landowners. 

“A future comprehensive redevelopment could replace the existing commercial space whilst also creating a new well-connected mixed use neighbourhood, delivering new homes, including much needed genuinely affordable homes, new green space and jobs. 

“The planning framework is a key tool helping us shape the future of this important area. We want to ensure we get this plan right and obtaining the feedback of local people, businesses and landowners is vital at this important stage.”
Councillor Danny Beales, Cabinet Member for Investing in Communities

This is the main stage of public consultation and your opportunity to provide feedback, following a first stage of engagement earlier in 2018.

The consultation will run for six weeks from Friday 26 October until Friday 7 December and is open to local residents, businesses, workers, community groups, and all other stakeholders who have an interest in the area. You can also view the relevant information and respond online by visiting: www.camden.gov.uk/kentishtownframework

The council are also holding two drop in events at Kentish Town Library on Thursday 8 November, from 1 to 4pm and Tuesday 20 November, from 5 to 8pm.

An exhibition will be also on display during the consultation in Kentish Town Library, during normal opening hours.
