A consultation opened last week on a draft Area Action Plan (AAP) for Fitzrovia. The plan has been put together by Camden Council with the help of residents and landowners in Fitzrovia.

The document could eventually become, if approved, part of Camden Council’s Local Development Framework: a collection of planning documents which together with national planning policy and the Mayor’s London Plan sets out the strategy for managing growth and development in the borough.

The consultation will continue until 13 April 2012.

Camden Council have been working with residents and landowners to produce the plan in response to continued significant pressure for development in Fitzrovia.

An Open Space and Public Realm Study was commissioned as part of the AAP process to explore ways in which more public open space could be delivered in Fitzrovia. The study was commissioned by Camden Council and has been produced by The Urban Movement Team at Urban Initiatives, and is available to view on Camden Council’s website.

There is an exhibition available to view at the Building Centre, South Crescent, Store Street. Open for viewing Monday to Friday: 9.30 am – 6.00 pm; Saturday: 10.00 am – 5.00 pm, until 6 April 2012.

There is also a set of documents available to view at the Fitzrovia Community Centre, Foley Street; and at the Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Centre, 39 Tottenham Street until 13 April 2012.

Camden’s planning officers will be on hand to answer any questions which you may have at the following drop-in sessions:

  • Thursday 22 March: 12.00pm – 3.30pm (Fitzrovia Community Centre, Foley Street)
