Congratulations to the England Men’s Football Team

Congratulations to the England Men’s Football Team for reaching the Final of the European Championship, the team’s best result in a major Championship in 55 years.

Although they didn’t win, we join with the rest of the country in congratulating them on this achievement, and we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see them improve on this result in the future.

Flooding in Camden — a message from Housing Repairs

Dear tenant

Following flooding in areas of Camden on Monday 12 July, Council teams including housing repairs have been working with emergency services to support residents who have been affected.

If you need emergency repairs to your council home caused by flooding, call us on 020 7974 4444, option 3 then 1. We are currently receiving a very high volume of calls so please bear with us if you are struggling to get through. If you or someone else is in immediate danger call the emergency services on 999.

Contact your neighbourhood housing officer if you need help or support because of flooding. There is more information about the flooding and support for Camden residents on our website.

We are currently only taking emergency calls and we expect that to be the case for at least until the end of the week. If your repair is not an emergency, please report it online using your Camden Account.

Please be aware that if you report an emergency which isn’t an emergency, our repairs staff will not complete your job and you will need to book another appointment.

We have had to cancel some non-emergency repairs this week so that we can prioritise the people whose homes have been affected by the floods. If your repair has been delayed, we apologise for the inconvenience as we know that some tenants have been waiting a long time for non-essential repairs. We assure you we will get to your job as quickly as we can.

Thank you all for your patience.

Agar Grove Redevelopment wins Passivhaus award

The redevelopment of the Agar Grove Estate has won Large Project of the Year at the 2021 UK Passivhaus Awards.

Passivhaus is a type of building (doesn’t have to be a house!) that is super-insulated and energy efficient, has no cold drafts in winter, doesn’t overheat in summer, and has good ventilation. Many people think that this type of building is what all buildings should be like in the future if society is going to drastically cut its greenhouse gas emissions.

Camden “Streateries” – Have Your Say

In a bid to help businesses deal with COVID restrictions, Camden Council have created “Streateries”, where footpath and road space is being used for outdoor eating space.

Have you used one? Do you live near one? Tell Camden Council what you think – they really want to know!
