Planning frameworks and briefs give guidance for specific sites and areas of Camden. This is 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 and help guide development.  We consider these carefully when we assess planning applications.

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

Place-based planning guidance currently being considered for adoption

Public consultation on the draft West End Lane to Finchley Road: Principles for a new place planning guidance document took place in February to April 2021 and is now closed.  We have used the feedback received to revise the planning guidance. 

It is currently intended for the planning guidance to be adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document on 24th September 2021.

View the Supplementary Planning Document and details to consider its adoption here.  This includes the consultation feedback summary and other related documents.
