Have your say on safety in council homes

The Council are asking for community feedback on safety in council-owned homes. If you are a council tenant or leaseholder, please tell them your views by 06 October.

Camden Council

Camden tenants and leaseholders, we want to hear your views.

As we prepare for new safety law which is expected to come into force next year, we are asking for feedback from the people who call our council houses home. You can complete the ‘safety in council homes’ survey in under 10 minutes at camden.gov.uk/safetyincouncilhomes .

We have had an excellent response to the consultation, and we have extended the closing date to make sure that everyone who wants to is able to take part. The new closing date for the consultation is midnight on Sunday 6 October 2019. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to complete the safety in council homes consultation so far.

If you require a printed copy of the survey or have any questions about the consultation please email safetyincouncilhomes@camden.gov.uk

Hidden London Underground

London’s Underground system has many deserted nooks and crannies, part of its history of more than 150 years. Tours can be organised to see some of them.

A book has been produced, Hidden London: Discovering the Forgotten Underground, including pictures of underground passages, repurposed stations, and disused stations (including Camden’s own South Kentish Town Station, closed since 1924).

In fact, South Kentish Town Station is being used as an escape room experience at the moment! Probably inspired by a piece, South Kentish Town, written by Sir John Betjeman, about a fictional passenger who became trapped at the station.
