Building homes and jobs in Camley Street

As part of our work on the Camley Street neighbourhood plan we have been talking to architects, planners, designers and others about how the future development of our neighbourhood can be shaped by the people who actually live and work here rather than outside property developers buying up the land and then presenting us with their vision for it’s future. As a result of a lot of discussions, meetings and simple hard graft we’ve grown the idea of creating a non-profit community led property development company from the germ of an idea into something that’s now attracting serious interest.

Those of you that have attended past events and meetings will have seen the outline of these ideas about how to provide truly affordable housing and seen how they have grown over the past couple of years into something that’s now mature enough to present to the world. A few weeks ago we made the decision to invite the Camden New Journal to meet with us and they published their report under the headline “Housing move that leaves out profit-hungry developers”

Resident Questionnaire for our Neighbourhood Plan

Over the next couple of days you should receive a leaflet and a survey questionnaire from us and we hope you can find the time to fill it in and return it as the answers you give are going to be very important in determining how Camley Street is redeveloped over the next few years.

If you’d prefer to do the survey online rather than on paper then you’ll find an interactive copy here https://planprojects.typeform.com/to/cmVhtt

If you have any questions then email us at: info at CamleyStreet.org.uk or meet us on Sunday 6th September – we’ll on Barker Drive just opposite the Garden Centre – with spare leaflets and brollies if it’s raining!

Our Autumn Harvest Festival on 25 September

Our Camley Street Autumn Harvest Party is on Friday 25 September from 6-9pm and as well as gathering around a blazing autumn bonfire with other neighbours there will be a Grape Harvest, live music and free food.

Camley Street Harvest Party

Your Invitation

Most of the apples and pears in the food will be from the fruit trees that have been planted in Camley Street over the past few year so the ‘food miles’ for the evening will be really low – zero in a lot of cases.

The party is being hosted by Alara Wholefoods and if you RSVP ahead of the day they will have a goody bag of treats for you when you arrive.

We hope to see you there.
