Registration services set for new home
Camden’s registration service – which provides registrations of births, marriages and deaths – is set to relocate to two temporary homes this summer, while renovation of Camden’s Town Hall takes place.
Camden Council’s 80-year-old Town Hall in Judd Street will close in August this year until 2021 whilst it undergoes some much needed refurbishment work that will reduce the running costs and make it more efficient for use.
As well as renovating the Mayor's parlour, council chamber, committee rooms and public spaces, the proposed improvements at the town hall will include new ceremony rooms, along with refurbished spaces for registering births, deaths, marriages and civil partnerships.
This means that registration services will relocate for three years.
Temporary homes for registration services from August 2018:
Crowndale Centre: Birth and death registrations, duplicate certificate applications and citizenship ceremonies will move to the Crowndale Centre, 218 Eversholt Street, NW1 1BD.
Tavistock House: The remaining services will relocate to Tavistock House, Tavistock Square, WC1H 9JB into a newly renovated space.
This will include the nationality checking service, settlement checking service, nationality document return service, european passport return service and taking notices for marriages and civil partnerships.
There will also be two ceremony suites at Tavistock house for weddings, civil partnerships and renewal of vows and five new interview rooms.
The two ceremony suites will boast high specification contemporary features with a traditional twist, fit for unique weddings, civil partnerships and vow renewals, suitable for parties of different sizes and budgets.
