Camden’s new Draft Local Plan could have negative impacts on Somers Town – how much can be built, how tall and where.
The Forum planning group have written a response to this – which is below.
Key points about this new Camden Draft Local plan are:
- it ignores Our Neighbourhood Plan
- It removes ‘areas of more limited change’
- it introduces new Community Investment Programme (CIP) sites at Somers Town, Gospel Oak and Camley Street
- community infrastructure relies on the proceeds of building increasing numbers of luxury flats
