How can we Help You

 

High Speed 2

sign our e-petitionCamden Council opposes plans for HS2 as currently proposed. If the Government does go ahead with the scheme, Camden is committed to fighting for the best deal for our communities.

That is why we are working with local residents, businesses and communities to seek to minimise the disruption they experience from HS2 and to make the case that any proposals should maximise community benefits and regeneration opportunities.

Camden faces the highest levels of disruption from HS2 of all the areas on the route.

  • Up to 500 homes could be destroyed or rendered uninhabitable. 
  • Hundreds of homes and businesses, and thousands of people, will be impacted by multiple construction works often lasting for a decade or longer. 
  • Drummond Street, Camden’s vibrant curry mile, will be hugely disrupted. 
  • St James Gardens, historic cemetery and open space will be severely diminished. 
  • Maria Fidelis School faces 10 years of blight and disruption to education.
  • Vent shafts at Adelaide Road, Alexandra Place and Cobourg Street will result in the loss of businesses, and residential and open space.
