Wasn’t sure if you have heard – we just found out this morning that the site is already up for auction on right move – even though it is an asset of community value – we’ve asked Camden to respond but they haven’t yet.

We are gathering on Sunday for photographs for local newspapers. Come along and find out more. Event details below. Bring a sign or banner!

Consultation on proposals for Chester Road temporary accommodation

To give everyone involved the same opportunity to meet the design team and discuss the proposals, we are holding a second drop-in exhibition event for local residents:

On Weds 19 June, between 3.30pm and 7pm at St Marys Brookfield church.

Why are we here?

• Our aim is to ensure that everyone has a roof over their head or is on a pathway to achieving this, minimising homelessness and rough sleeping.

• We propose to develop the Council’s portfolio of temporary hostel accommodation so that it better meets the needs of homeless households and supports the longer-term objectives of finding them settled, sustainable housing.

• We will develop new hostels to provide improved accommodation for residents and help us to deliver a sustainable service.

• Instead of paying high rental charges to the private sector to house homeless households, the Council will re-develop some of its own temporary accommodation buildings for homeless families. Bringing the temporary hostel accommodation in-house will enable the council to provide better quality accommodation for those who have a short term housing need and save the council a significant sum in rental charges.

• We will engage with residents affected by this change who live and work close to the Chester Road Hostel as the proposals are further developed, and would like to listen to their views on the Council’s proposal to demolish the existing hostel and replace it with a new one for families.

DPNF submits proposed Plan to Camden Council

Camden Council


Notice of receipt of a proposed Neighbourhood Plan

Dartmouth Park Neighbourhood Forum has submitted its proposed Neighbourhood Plan to Camden Council, in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012.

We are now consulting residents and interested stakeholders on this proposed Plan.

How does this affect me?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a statutory planning document setting out planning policies for the development and use of land in the area. The Plan sets out a range of policies on matters including design and character, housing, public realm, environment and sustainability, and transport.

The Neighbourhood Plan, if approved, will be used, alongside the Council’s policies when making planning decisions in the neighbourhood area.

To view the proposed Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents (including a map showing the boundary for the Plan – the ‘neighbourhood area’) and for further information on how to respond to this consultation please go to:

Comments must be received by Friday 3rd May 2019 and should be sent via e-mail or post to:

What happens next?

Once the consultation has finished, the Council will forward the responses and the Neighbourhood Plan to an independent examiner.  The examiner will assess whether the plan meets the statutory requirements.   If the plan passes the examination, a referendum will be organised to give the community the final say on whether the Plan is to be used in determining planning applications in the designated neighbourhood area.

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us:
