Forum response to ‘Local plan’

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:

  1. it ignores Our Neighbourhood Plan
  2. It removes ‘areas of more limited change’
  3. it introduces new Community Investment Programme (CIP) sites at Somers Town, Gospel Oak and Camley Street
  4. community infrastructure relies on the proceeds of building increasing numbers of luxury flats
