West Kentish Town Estate was built in 1964 and consists of 316 homes in 3 and 4 storey blocks. Council officers have been finding out from residents what they like and dislike about their homes and estate. This is so that the Council can decide how to make the estate a better place to live.
West Kentish Town Estate Renewal Steering Group
In December 2017 the West Kentish Town Estate Renewal Steering Group was set up. This is one of the ways Camden is learning from residents about the possible renewal and redevelopment of their estate.

Selection of Architects
In June 2018 residents visited housing schemes designed by architects shortlisted by the Council. Three representatives from the Steering Group were trained and sat on the interview panel which selected PRP architects. The architects then ran a series of workshops with residents to develop options for their estate. You can view the exhibition boards below. Residents also wrote their own brief for what they want out of any scheme.
