Planning frameworks and briefs provide guidance for specific sites and areas of Camden where we expect significant development and growth to happen.

These documents provide additional and more specific policy and place-based guidance to support the Local Plan to help guide development.  They are an important consideration when the Council assesses planning applications.

Some other areas and sites are subject to separate policies and guidance through Local Plan documents such as Area Plans, Site Allocations and neighbourhood plans.
