Health & Wellbeing in Camden — Consultation

A message from Camden Council:

In Camden it remains an unacceptable truth that men and women born in the most affluent areas live 18 and 19 longer years longer in a healthy state than their counterparts in the most deprived areas. Together, we seek to reverse these inequalities and make Camden the very best place to start well, live well and age well.

Camden’s draft Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2021-30 six-week consultation opens on 1st November and will close on 13th December. We want to hear your views on our proposed approach to improve health and wellbeing. Whether you live, work or receive care in the borough, we want your voice to be at the heart of the new strategy.

To find out more and to share your views, please visit the consultation website:
Share Your Views On Joint Health And Wellbeing Strategy 2021-2030 – Commonplace

Please also promote the consultation with your communities and networks by sharing the website and this consultation leaflet.

If you have any questions or would like accessible versions of the strategy, please contact healthandwellbeingboard@camden.gov.uk or call 0207 974 5827.

The Ultra Low Emission Zone is expanding

If you own a car, you will be aware of the Ultra Low Emission Zone, a measure to reduce air pollution in central London by charging daily for driving a polluting vehicle inside the zone.

Before it was only within the Congestion Charging Zone (so only Holborn was inside the zone), but now it has been expanded out to the North Circular and the South Circular, including the whole of the Borough. So if you have an older car, you may need to start paying the new charge.

For more information, see the TfL website:

To check to see if your car is exempt:
