This is a blog written by the Marchmont Association. We use it to communicate both what we’ve been up to, and the things we’ve discovered about the neighbourhood through our work. Comments, feedback and ideas for postings all welcome.
The Marchmont Association unites local residents and businesses in a simple cause – to improve the local area for the benefit of all.
Our Aims, as outlined in our Constitution, show how we intend to achieve this:
To promote the on-going improvement of Marchmont Street and the surrounding area, including the conservation of its historic character, for the benefit of residents, businesses and visitors.
To establish and maintain a safe, high-quality street environment within Marchmont Street and the area of benefit of the Association, thereby making it an attractive place to live, work and visit.
To promote community spirit and ‘pride of place’ through a sense of shared responsibility.
To work in partnership with Camden Council, the Police, local residents groups and other relevant organisations in order to achieve the above aims.
To attract investment into the area from a variety of external sources in addition to local fundraising.
The Chair’s Annual Report for 2014/15 highlights the work we have done over the past year to promote these Aims.
Our Area Of Benefit
By popular demand we extended our ‘area of benefit’ in May 2008 and changed our name to the “Marchmont Association” (MA), reflecting our interest in this wider area.
We extended the area of benefit again in May 2010 to include the whole of the area between Euston Road and Guilford Street and Judd Street and Woburn Place. We further extended our area of benefit eastwards to Gray’s Inn Road in May 2013.
