Camden Local Plan Review
Work has started on the review of the Camden Local Plan 2017 – the Council’s main planning document, which provides the framework for managing development in the borough.
Alongside the Local Plan review, the Council is continuing to progress the update to the Site Allocations Local Plan, which sets out its approach to sites where significant future development is expected.
To inform the development of the new and updated Local Plan for Camden we held a call for views from 4 November 2022 to 13 January 2023. To find out more about this engagement and view the responses please visit our Local Plan Commonplace site.
The responses received as part of this engagement will feed into the preparation of the draft Local Plan, that will be published for consultation later in 2023. The timetable for the Local Plan review is available to view here.
Adopted Local Plan
The Council has adopted a number of planning documents that together form the development plan for Camden. This is the starting point for planning decisions in the borough.
The Camden Local Plan is the key strategic document in Camden’s development plan. It sets out the vision for shaping the future of the Borough and contains policies for guiding planning decisions.
The Local Plan was adopted by Council on 3 July 2017. It has replaced the Core Strategy and Camden Development Policies documents. It is now the basis for planning decisions and future development in Camden.
