Tavi Place inquirer confirmed

The independent inspector who will carry out the Public Inquiry for the Torrington Place/Tavistock Place scheme has been announced as Martin Elliott. A quick Google search shows he’s done a lot of these inquiries, mainly dealing with issues around rights of way and common land.

The Inquiry will begin at 10.00am on Tuesday 10 October 2017 and is scheduled to last for 19 days. It will take place on Floor 11 at the offices of the London Borough of Camden, 5 Pancras Square.

Ahead of the start date, a Pre-Inquiry Meeting is taking place later this month – in the Council Chamber on Judd Street, on Thursday 31 August, commencing at 1.00pm. Any individuals or groups wanting to attend are asked to get in touch with the programme officer, Pauline Butcher at camdentransportinquiry@outlook.com, by Friday 25th August.


Return of the Marchmont St party!

We’re delighted to announce the return of the Marchmont Street Party this year. The event will be held on Saturday 23rd September 12-5pm. The event is being organised by the Marchmont Association and King’s Cross Brunswick Neighbourhood Association, who run the community centre at 62 Marchmont Street and a range of valued community services in the area.

We’re grateful for the generous support of the local businesses who have agreed to sponsor the event, and to Camden Council for a small grant. Stalls invitations have been issued to previous stallholders (80 in total in 2014).

A few old favourites have been booked to play on the live stage, including the Lambeth Wind Orchestra, Tropical Heatwave and local band, the Northern Celts. There will also be Fun Fair rides, Circus Skills workshops and Punch & Judy shows for the children. More attractions will be announced nearer the time.

FUNDING ALERT – The party is one of the ‘green token’ appeals in Waitrose at the moment. All the proceeds will help pay for children’s entertainment on the day, so please support.

If you would like to get involved, by organising a stall or volunteering to help on the day, please contact us using the ‘Get Involved’ link on the MA web site.
