Help shape the future of Gospel Oak and Haverstock - Have your say on a new draft area plan

Camden council is inviting residents, businesses, and those interested in the area’s future to have their say on a new draft planning Framework for Gospel Oak and Haverstock that sets out how they might wish the neighbourhood to develop in the future.

Councillor Danny Beales, Cabinet Member for Investing in Communities, Culture and an Inclusive Economy
“We want to make Gospel Oak and Haverstock an even better place to live, work and visit – a safer, greener place, with the new homes and community facilities people need to succeed.

“The Community Vision is a planning framework that provides specific guidance for this area that the council and anyone seeking planning permission will need to consider. It will be used to help shape investment in the places and spaces that make up the neighbourhood.

“We have produced the draft vision following extensive engagement with the local community, including an innovative local neighbourhood assembly. We are now launching a consultation on a final draft document, by asking local people to help us to refine the vision before it is formally adopted in early 2022.

“The vision is clear, any future changes in the area must benefit those that already call the area home, including enabling more genuinely affordable homes. We want to direct investment to help us make a safer, healthier, more sustainable and better-connected neighbourhood.”
Councillor Danny Beales, Cabinet Member for Investing in Communities, Culture and an Inclusive Economy

The consultation is now live and will run until 17 December. You can have your say online by visiting Have Your Say Today – Gospel Oak And Haverstock Community Vision – Commonplace

Paper copies of the consultation and questions are also available from Queen’s Crescent library.
