About the Camden Commission

The Camden Commission has been set up to take an evidence based approach to help set the focus for the Council in the coming years. It will focus on a number of broad themes, more of which may be added as the Commission undertakes it work.

COMMUNITY COHESION

How can we ensure that Camden remains a place where residents feel that they belong and can safely take part in local life; a place where people support one another and share common values in a diverse community? 

AN INCLUSIVE ECONOMY - A GLOBALISED WORLD

Camden is an international borough which benefits from its place in the global economy, but too many residents are excluded. What can we do to maintain our diverse communities and make sure that globalisation benefits all residents? How can we make sure that everyone in Camden has the security they need to enjoy a good standard of living?

RESHAPING PUBLIC SERVICES

How can Camden Council provide the services required to meet residents’ needs in a changing and challenging funding situation? Looking at what can be done to deliver these services in new and better ways.

PRESERVING AND ENHANCING CAMDEN'S SENSE OF IDENTITY AND PLACE

Camden is famous for being a hub of creativity, innovation, culture, music and the arts, and home to world class institutions, and open spaces.  Camden has always been an open community that values diversity and difference. Being at the centre of London life helps make the borough an attractive place to live, work, study and visit.  What can be done to ensure that these assets are maximised, preserved and developed? How can we ensure that local people benefit from what makes Camden special, balancing the needs of residents alongside those of visitors and businesses.
