What is our Camden planning guidance?
Camden Planning Guidance (CPG) provides advice and information on how we will apply our planning policies.
The Council has reviewed its Camden Planning Guidance documents to support the delivery of the Camden Local Plan following its adoption in 2017. The update was carried out in two phases to manage the amount of material to be consulted on at any one time and ensure that relevant revised CPG documents take into account changes to the London Plan and to national planning policy.
Once adopted the CPG documents can be 'material considerations' in planning decisions, although they have less weight than the Local Plan or other development plan documents.
The following CPG draft documents were adopted on 15 March 2019 following consultation as phase 2 of the review.
- CPG Access for all
- CPG Air quality
- CPG Altering and extending your home
- CPG Artworks statues and memorials
- CPG Design
- CPG Developer contributions
- CPG Energy efficiency and adaptation
- CPG Interim Housing
- CPG 2 Housing (May 2006 Updated march 2019)
- CPG Student housing
- CPG Transport
- CPG Trees
- CPG Water and flooding
