Camden Goods Yard Planning Framework

Public consultation

The consultation period on the draft Camden Goods Yard Planning Framework has now closed.  Thank you to those who participated and contributed their views.

What happens next?

We are in the process of reviewing all the comments received and updating the planning framework.  We anticipate adopting the final Camden Goods Yard Planning Framework as a Supplementary Planning Document in the summer of 2017.    Once adopted, we will make the final version of the planning framework available on this page.

What is a planning framework?

It is intended that the planning framework for Camden Goods Yard will be adopted by the Council as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).  SPD’s build upon the policies in the local plan providing more detailed advice and guidance.

The framework sets out a vision and key objectives for this specific area of the borough.  It will help guide any future development of the area and will be an important consideration when assessing planning applications.

Why we are producing a planning framework for this area?

Chalk Farm planning framework area

Morrisons have teamed up with Barratt London and are currently developing proposals for the redevelopment of the Morrisons supermarket and Petrol Garage on Chalk Farm Road.  Plans are for the replacement of the supermarket and petrol garage, along with additional homes and employment space.  The plans are still under development but Morrisons are currently expected to submit a full planning application later in 2017.   

One Housing Group manage the housing estates at Juniper Crescent and Gilbey's Yard.  One Housing are in the early stages of exploring the challenges and opportunities for their residents and estates, including the potential to provide more new homes.  This work is at the very early stages and there are no firm or agreed plans in place at this time. One Housing will be carrying out their own engagement with tenants to explore local concerns and aspirations for the future of the neighbourhood over the coming months.

The area neighbours Camden Markets including Camden Lock Market which was granted planning permission in 2016 for various alterations and improvements.

Network Rail owns an area of land between Juniper Crescent and the Primrose Hill foot bridge.  The area includes the former Primrose Hill Station.  This area is currently safeguarded for a High Speed 2 (HS2) construction compound, but in the longer term there may be potential for redevelopment.

With the potential that significant redevelopment may occur in parts of this area in the coming years, we want to ensure a strategic and coordinated approach is taken to deliver the best outcomes for our communities and the area.  This should include delivering new homes, affordable homes, jobs, new open space and facilities, whilst providing an integrated and attractive place to live and work.

A planning framework, developed with input from the public and local stakeholders, will play an important role in influencing any future development of this area.
