We remain opposed to HS2 due to the years of disruption HS2 construction could cause residents and businesses, with current plans not delivering the desired outcomes for Camden’s communities.
However, if HS2 does go ahead, we want any development of Euston station to achieve the vision of the Euston Area Plan, the plan for the area agreed by Camden Council, Mayor of London and Transport for London. Central to this is having more affordable homes and local jobs at Euston.
We think a comprehensive approach to the redevelopment of Euston station, integrating plans for HS2, Network Rail, Crossrail 2 and the Underground, needs to be taken forward in order to provide at least 2,000 much-needed homes, replacement open space and around 15,000 jobs.
However, the latest plans for the HS2 terminus at Euston will be built on a phased basis, with the HS2 tracks and station expected to be completed by 2033.
This plan gives no guarantees on timescales or funding for a full development of the station in the future.
