Kentish Town Future
This report for Groundwork Camden grew out of a previous project reviewing opportunities for new breakthrough pedestrian links between West Kentish Town and Kentish Town Road. The two halves of the area have long been awkwardly connected. New pathways were and are an interesting way to address the larger problem of obstructive commercial landholdings right in the heart of the area.
The huge potential of KT is related to the future of its railway lands. The report for Groundwork attempted to open up debate about the future. Only now, with the emergence of the Localism Bill is that conversation coming alive although all the old pitfalls await the unwary.
