Revitalising Camden Town Hall

The scope of the work and timeline

We will submit our planning application in October 2018. We will make sure all residents are aware of our plans and alternative arrangements to access services before and during the refurbishment, which we expect to take around 3 years to complete.

We will work closely with local residents and businesses to minimise the impact on those who live and work near the town hall.

All of the existing public areas in the town hall will be retained as public spaces.

What has happened so far?

  • In February 2016 Cabinet approved an outline business case to refurbish Camden Town Hall based on creation and leasing of employment space in vacant office areas and the basement
  • On 14 September 2016 Cabinet agreed a full business case for the employment space option
  • On 14 December 2016 Cabinet agreed the procurement strategy for the project and to lease the Camden Centre to a commercial operator.

The Council will act as the developer on the Town Hall project and retain ownership of the building. Following a competitive procurement process Lendlease Consulting (Europe) Ltd. has been appointed as the project management company.
