How can we Help You

 

Small sites consultation

In December 2010 we launched our 15 year Community Investment Programme (CIP). During these challenging financial times, this programme of work will help to ensure that we make the best use of our assets and continue investing in Camden’s future.

As part of this work we are reviewing a number of small sites we own around the borough. We want to find ways to provide new homes and generate investment to improve existing council homes, schools and community facilities.

Most recent consultations

Studholme Court, Finchley Road, NW3

In summer 2013 we consulted residents about the proposed sale of an area of land at Studholme Court on Finchley Road. This site is the grassed area by the entrance to Studholme Court, next to number 53, as shown in red on the map on the download:

Sale of this site could contribute towards the investment needed in existing council homes in the Frognal and Fitzjohns ward, which is £1.1m over the next five years.

The Council has yet to make a decision on whether to develop or dispose of this site.

If the Council does decide to sell the site there will be further consultation about any proposed change of use, or new development on the site, when the planning application is made.

Willingham Close estate, NW5

Towards the end of 2013 we consulted residents about disposal and development of the garages site on the Willingham Close estate, including potential disposal to Pocket Living who develop low cost homes for sale. On 4 February 2014 Councillor Fulbrook, Cabinet Member for Housing, decided to declare this site surplus and dispose of it to Pocket Living at full market value. On 27 February the Council's Development Control Committee approved Pocket Living's planning application for the site.

Previous consultations

Towards the end of 2012 we consulted local residents and businesses about proposals to sell small sites of land within the locations below to generate much needed investment:

Following the consultation consideration of the site on the Regent's Park estate was suspended pending the outcome of the Council's legal challenge to HS2, the Government's proposed Highspeed Rail line from London to Birmingham. This site is now being considered for new housing to replace some of the council homes that would be demolished if HS2 went ahead.

All the remaining sites were approved for sale by the Council's Cabinet at its meeting of 27 February 2013, with sales to proceed during this financial year, 2013-2014. However, since then the Council has decided not to progress the sale of the sites on the Bridgeway Street estate, the College Place estate, at Constable House and in Dynham Road until there has been further consideration of other options for these sites.
