The Camden plan – three years on

In June 2012, we launched the Camden plan – an ambitious roadmap to make Camden a better borough, despite the challenging financial climate.

Looking back over the last three years, it is clear we are making significant in-roads. We are tackling inequality by focusing our efforts on where our resources can make the most difference through improvements to housing, health and employment.

For example, we have:

• become the country’s first Timewise council – championing flexible and part-time working

• worked with developers to create 700 apprenticeship and work experience opportunities

• secured £9 million of investment to make cycling improvements

• introduced a scheme so residents can make council payments at any post office, benefitting our most vulnerable customers.

But this is just a snapshot. We have now published a update packed with further examples of what we’ve achieved and what we plan to do next. You can read this at www.camden.gov.uk/camdenplan.
