Local Plan Submission Draft
Consultation on the Local Plan Submission Draft ran for 8 weeks from 8th February to the 4th April. The Local Plan Submission Documents can be viewed on the Local Plan Examination webpage.
Copies of all representations received has been submitted to the Secretary of State, along with the Plan and associated documents, for public examination by a Planning Inspector. When finalised, the Plan will replace our current Core Strategy and Camden Development Policies documents as the basis for planning decisions and future development in the borough.
We have prepared the Plan drawing on the feedback from previous consultation and engagement, evidence gathering and national policy and legislation.

Camden Character Study
The Camden Character Study was undertaken to identify and describe the character typologies that inform local distinctiveness across the Borough. The study area is those parts of the borough for which the character is not already described so it excludes the conservation areas, growth areas and public open spaces. The study was prepared by Urban Initiatives Studio.
