Camden Planning Guidance


Camden Planning Guidance (CPG) provides advice and information on how we will apply our planning policies.

The Council has reviewed its Camden Planning Guidance documents. This is  to support the delivery of the Camden Local Plan following its adoption in 2017. The  adopted CPG documents can be 'material considerations' in planning decisions. However, they have less weight than the Local Plan or other development plan documents.

Adopted CPG documents:

The previous CPG 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 documents have now been fully superseded. CPG 2 - Housing has been updated as part of the reviews and is included above. The document includes notes to indicate where text has been replaced or removed.

The CPG documents  were adopted by Council on 26 March 2018. This followed consultation as Phase 1 of the review and 18 March 2019 following consultation as Phase 2 of the review. Copies of the consultation responses were included within the reports linked above.


Planning Frameworks and Briefs

Planning frameworks and briefs are used to set out guidelines, objectives and priorities with regards to the development of some of the most significant sites and areas in the borough where major proposals are likely to come forward.
