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.
If you haven’t yet had your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, there are pop-up vaccine events happening in Camden every day this week except for Sunday, many of which don’t require bookings in advance – see below for more info or visit camden.gov.uk/getting-the-vaccine.
If you haven’t had your first dose then please pop-along and get vaccinated – and why not invite unvaccinated friends and family members to join you? Unless stated otherwise, if you’re eligible for your second dose of the vaccine you’ll be able to get that too but you must have had the same vaccine for your first dose. Click here for more information.
You don’t need to be registered with a GP or have an NHS number to be vaccinated and we won’t ask for proof of ID, address or immigration status.
Alternatively, you can also book a vaccine appointment by calling 119 for free or visiting nhs.uk/coronavirusvaccine. Those not registered with a GP can complete the form at camden.gov.uk/form and anyone needing support to book an appointment can call us on 020 7974 4444 (option 9).

The Pop up Business School (PUBS) is an alternative to traditional business start-up support and aims to work in specific communities to teach people how to start a business without borrowing money and without a formal business plan.
We’ve partnered with the popular PopUp Business School to help would-be start-ups in Camden to get their ideas off the ground. If you’re a Camden resident looking to start your own business – sign up to the free live online course.
We have a small number of in-person places at the Highgate Centre which will be reserved for Camden residents who do not have digital access – contact EconomicDevelopment@camden.gov.uk, inserting ‘Camden Pop-Up Business School’ as the subject title.
