Camden’s New Homes for Small Sites Programme launches

We’re launching a new house-building project so that we can build even more new homes as part of our Community Investment Programme. 

Camden’s New Homes for Small Sites Programme will focus on exploring development opportunities on underused council-owned land and use this land to deliver new affordable homes for local people.

We have now launched the first stage of the programme which is our Community 'Call for Ideas’.

The ‘Call for Ideas’ will ask the community to suggest areas of existing council-owned land, currently not in use as housing, which could be used to provide additional homes.

Our residents know their community best, which is why we want to work closely with local people so that they have the chance to tell us what their community needs and give them the opportunity to help shape the future of the programme.

We want to hear from people who live and work in Camden - our new interactive website features an easy-to-use function which will allow you to place a pin on a map of council owned land in Camden and tell us where there is an opportunity to build new homes.

The Small Sites Programme offers new possibilities to deliver additional affordable homes on council-owned land, without requiring decant or demolition of existing homes. It will also provide opportunities for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and community or self-build developers to engage in the delivery programme offering further benefits to the wider community.

The Call for Ideas website is now live, please click here.
