Introduction to the councillor's role
We want to make Camden a better borough - a place where everyone has a chance to succeed and nobody gets left behind. The Camden Plan launched in May 2012 sets out clear ambitions and outcomes that we are planning to have achieved by 2017, with some proposed immediate next steps and longer-term plans on how we will deliver the ambitions of the plan.
To achieve our ambitions for Camden we need to work with both the community and our partners. For this reason the plan is not a comprehensive list of what needs to be done. It sets out the destination and the starting point but much of the journey is still to be mapped out with others.
We aim to give you some useful information about Camden Council and a flavour of the role of a councillor. Becoming a councillor in Camden means being at the heart of local democracy. It represents a big investment by you as a citizen in your community and it can be both tremendously challenging and rewarding.
