The St Giles to Holborn area has been identified as a placeshaping area because it is an important, vibrant and historic area within the borough and is undergoing significant changes.
The area will continue to experience significant development, particularly through the redevelopment of the Tottenham Court Road station and the arrival of Crossrail into the area. These changes raise a number of opportunities and challenges for local communities and businesses as well as significant opportunities. It is important to make the most of these opportunities to meet local needs and achieve a shared vision.
