Camden green bin. Used to illustrate public consultations.

There were 51 planning applications in Bloomsbury ward, which includes Fitzrovia East, registered by Camden Council in August 2022.

Among the list of applications is: alterations to entrance and service door at 40 Whitfield Street. This includes part of the Tesco store on Goodge Street and the application suggests that part of the store could be converted to office use. (See our news story here.)

Other applications include: sub-division of existing ground floor commercial space to create five commercial units including new entrance doors along Warren Street and Conway Street; tables and chairs on pavement at 14 Warren Street, 15-17 Goodge, 252 Tottenham Court Road, and 100 Tottenham Court Road; alterations to 51-52 Tottenham Court Road; variation of condition of planning permission already given at 13 Tottenham Mews.

There are also some appeals lodged against previous planning decisions. Notably there is an appeal by UCLH Charity to reduce the amount of affordable housing — including social housing — on the site of the former Middlesex Hospital Annex, 44 Cleveland Street. See second table below.

Residents in Camden may also contact the Charlotte Street Association for help and advice in responding to planning and licensing applications.
