Planning and built environment


From 1 October 2016 you will no longer receive a letter from us if your neighbour submits a planning application. You can still find out about planning applications:

  • on new improved posters on lamp posts
  • by signing up to planning email alerts
  • in the planning section of the Camden Account
  • through adverts in the Camden New Journal and the Ham & High

Planning applications
