We’ve got a new plan for transport in Camden

Everyone’s got a view on transport. We’d like to know yours. Have your say by Friday 14 December.

Transport is essential to our daily lives – whether it’s travelling from work to home, visiting a friend, getting to an appointment, or travelling outside of London. We all rely on transport to get us where we need to be.

As a council, we’re committed to creating a transport network that meets the needs of everyone who lives, works and travel in Camden – and helps us travel in the most healthy, efficient and sustainable way.

So we’ve put together a new strategy outlining our vision and priorities for transport in Camden from 2019 to 2041.

We want to:

  • increase walking and cycling
  • improve public transport in the borough
  • reduce car ownership, car use and motor traffic levels in Camden
  • improve the quality of our air
  • make our streets and transport networks safe, accessible and inclusive for all.

You can read our full draft transport strategy, supporting documents and overview version, and give us your views, at the link below.

Councillor Adam Harrison, Cabinet Member for Improving Camden's Environment, says:

“We want Camden to be as clean, green and sustainable as possible. This is even more the case at a time when we are still coming to terms with the full impact of air pollution on our health and carbon emission on our planet's health.

“Changing how we travel is central to making progress on both of these fronts. We also need to keep Camden moving by ensuring the roads are clear for essential journeys for those who do need to use a car.

To do this, many of us need to switch over to walking, cycling and taking public transport. Please take a look at our plans for transport in Camden and let us know your views.”
