Camden Local Plan Review
Work has started on the review of the Camden Local Plan 2017 – the Council’s main planning document, which provides the framework for managing development in the borough.
This is your opportunity to shape the future of Camden. To find out more and share your views visit the Local Plan Commonplace site. You can also email your responses and comments directly to us at PlanningPolicy@camden.gov.uk.
Alongside the Local Plan review, the Council is continuing to progress the update to the Site Allocations Local Plan, which sets out its approach to sites where significant future development is expected. To inform the development of the Site Allocations Local Plan we are also holding a call for sites (including housing, employment and gypsy and traveller sites). To find out more and submit a site visit the Call for Sites page on the Local Plan Commonplace site.
We are also inviting communities in Camden to propose areas of open space for designation in the Plan as Local Green Spaces. To find out more and submit a site visit the Call for Sites page on the Local Plan Commonplace site.
The engagement on the Local Plan Review is open to the 13 January 2023. Responses should be submitted by 5pm on the 13 January 2023.
This engagement will feed into the preparation of a draft Local Plan, that will be published for consultation in 2023. The timetable for the Local Plan review is available to view here.
Adopted Local Plan
The Council has adopted a number of planning documents that together form the development plan for Camden. This is the starting point for planning decisions in the borough.
The Camden Local Plan is the key strategic document in Camden’s development plan. It sets out the vision for shaping the future of the Borough and contains policies for guiding planning decisions.
The Local Plan was adopted by Council on 3 July 2017. It has replaced the Core Strategy and Camden Development Policies documents. It is now the basis for planning decisions and future development in Camden.
