Camden Joint DMC Meeting – 2020

There will be a joint meeting of the Camden District Management Committees (DMCs) on Wednesday 08 January 2020. This will be to input into the Council’s setting of social housing rents and service charges for the coming year.

After four years of mandatory social housing rent reductions, the Council is proposing to raise rents from April 2020. They can raise rents by up to 2.7% (inflation + 1%). This would cover increased costs, as well as allow the Council to provide an improved housing management service, and help to replenish funding reserves to cover unexpected items (e.g. installing new fire-resistant building cladding).

The Council also propose to increase services charges for social housing tenants by 1.7% (the rate of inflation). They propose to use the increased money raised to improve caretaking services, and help improve security and CCTV.

CASP are represented on the DMCs, so:

Camden Pop-Up – Think & Do

Camden Think & Do pop-up

We’re getting in touch from Camden Council because we’ve just opened a pop-up ‘think & do’ community space for climate and eco-action in Kentish Town. This is in response to the Citizens’ Assembly recommendation to do more to bring existing community groups together to work on tackling the climate crisis.

The aim of the pop-up is to give people in Camden the chance to take part in, run and grow activities that get people more involved in tackling the climate crisis. From clothes swaps to meals made from surplus veg, there are a variety of events coming up that we’d love you to attend.

Where is the community space and when is it open?

We’re the teal blue building at 315 Kentish Town Rd, Kentish Town, London NW5 2TJ (opposite the library). We’re open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am – 8pm now until 7th December.

What is happening at the pop-up?

The 6-week programme of events is being curated and led by Camden residents and community groups. See schedule for the first week below.
