Community Investment Programme - an introduction
The Community Investment Programme (CIP) is our ambitious plan to invest in schools, homes and community facilities in Camden. It’s our answer to government spending cuts.
In September 2022 we committed to expanding the Programme and making an additional £1.3 billion investment that will see the Council increasing the numbers of social and affordable homes in Camden.
This additional investment will mean building a total of: 4,850 new homes, including 1,800 council homes; and 350 Camden Living Rent homes for nurses, teachers, keyworkers and other middle-earners.
We've also invested in 48 schools and children's centres and creating 9,000m2 of improved community facilities, the equivalent of 35 tennis courts.
Our expanded Programme will enable the Council to continue building larger, energy-efficient homes that provide Camden families with the space they need, help to tackle rising bills and lower carbon emissions.
CIP will also help renovate thousands of existing council homes, as part of the Council’s Better Homes Programme.
