Camden planning guidance

What is our Camden Planning Guidance?

Camden Planning Guidance (CPG) provides advice and information on how we will apply our planning policies.

The Council is reviewing and updating its Camden Planning Guidance documents to support the delivery of the Camden Local Plan following its adoption in summer 2017. The update is being 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.

The CPG documents below were adopted by Council on 26 March 2018 following consultation as Phase 1 of the review.

The following CPG documents (amended where necessary to reflect changes made in Phase 1) continue to apply until they are updated in Phase 2 of the review. Where text has been superseded by the adopted Phase 1 documents the existing CPG has been updated with relevant text “struck-through” accordingly.

The previous CPG4 Basements and lightwells and CPG5 Town centres and employment have been fully superseded by CPG Basements, CPG Town centres and retail and CPG Employment and business premises.

Phase 2 of the review of Camden Planning Guidance

Work on phase 2 of the review of Camden Planning Guidance will be progressed in 2018 and will include a full review of CPG2 Housing and CPG7 Transport and a review of the elements of CPG1 Design, CPG3 Sustainability, CPG6 Amenity and CPG8 Planning obligations that were not updated in Phase 1.

Engagement in Phase 1 of the review

The following draft CPG documents were consulted on between 15 November and 12 January 2018:

Initial engagement on the CPG review

The first stage in the review of Camden Planning Guidance was a ‘call for views’ consultation in May – July 2017.  The Council asked users’ views on which parts of all the CPG documents they felt needed to be updated, whether there were additional matters that required guidance, and  the usability and format of the current documents.
