Planning frameworks and briefs provide 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 to help guide development.  They are an important consideration when the Council assesses planning applications.
