Camden is launching a new consultation on the Site Allocation Local Plan

Posted on 2/12/2021

(This possibly relates to the substantial controversy over the proposed development of the 02 Centre site.)

Further opportunity to have your say on the emerging Site Allocations Local Plan

Since the last consultation on the Site Allocations Local Plan ended in March/April 2020 a lot has happened: Camden has declared a climate emergency; there have been significant changes to the national planning system; the New London Plan has been adopted, as have two more Neighbourhood Plans; and we are in the midst of a worldwide pandemic that is likely to have a lasting impact on our work, home and leisure priorities.

Over the last few months we have had requests from some local residents and community groups for us to carry out some further consultation on the Plan before we undertake a formal consultation on the next draft (Publication Draft). In response, we held an online public meeting earlier in November to give people a chance to find out more about the Plan and ask questions (recording available here). We have also now launched an additional online consultation to make it easier for people to have a further say on the growth areas and individual sites proposed for allocation in the Plan and on what more the Plan could do to help tackle the climate crisis. Please see our site allocations commonplace homepage. Alternatively you can email your comments to using the subject title: Site Allocations – Additional Engagement.

The closing date for additional comments on the Draft Site Allocations Local Plan is Monday 24 January 2022. All comments received by the Council will be considered by the Council in preparing its the Publication Draft of the Plan.
