London Borough of Camden extends from Hampstead Heath in the
North to Central London and the West End in the South. Since 1997 Camden
has encouraged the development of carfree housing schemes and is one of the most experienced boroughs in this area. Carfree and low car developments are now very widespread across the borough. Camden especially encourages the development of carfree housing
in locations that are:
Green Dragon House, at the rear of the
former Holborn Town Hall, (Soho Housing Association) is one
of London's first carfree developments.
An area originally designated
for parking has been released as a communal amenity.
The Montgomery Building, on the busy Farringdon Road,
(Berkley Homes North London) offers carfree housing near to
the City. The area is well served for public transport with
a wide range of services and facilities in the immediate vacinity.
Britannia Street (PCHA Ltd), near Kings Cross
- a notable congestion and pollution hot spot, is another early
example of carfree housing development in London. Near to the
public transport hub of King's Cross Station
