The vision for Camley Street

Camley Street is changing into a highly sustainable new neighbourhood including genuinely affordable homes, improved business space and job opportunities, underpinned by a bold vision for meaningful and imaginative placemaking.

Over the past few years, we have worked hard to create a vision for Camley Street that represents local people; with regular meetings of the Camley Street Steering Group, workshops with local young people, drop-in consultation events around the area, the Connecting Camley Street gallery space in the underpass, and of course the Camley Street Festival.

We are currently searching for a developer partner to help us bring forward this development, and we are looking for a team that values the input of the community as much as we do. Come and talk to us to find out more.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
