The Community Investment Programme is the London Borough of Camden's ambitious 15-year plan to invest over £1 billion in schools, homes and community facilities in Camden. In total, we’re building 3,050 new homes, including, 1,100 council homes, 300 genuinely affordable homes to rent, investing in 53 schools and children’s centres and providing 9,000m2 of improved community facilities, the equivalent of 35 tennis courts. CIP will also help renovate thousands of existing council homes, as part of the Council’s Better Homes Programme.
Over the past few years Camden has created an ambitious and innovative development programme, at the forefront of the local authority housebuilding renaissance. So far we’ve built 862 homes, with a further 120 currently under construction, and a pipeline of future schemes including some of our largest and most ambitious to date. CIP schemes have won multiple awards for the quality of architecture and design, and have featured in the national and local media. We are funding this investment in affordable homes, schools and community facilities by building homes for private sale and by selling buildings and land that we no longer need. The timely and cost efficient delivery of new homes means more money can be reinvested back into Camden – for the benefit of residents today and in the future.
We are now looking to add to our expanding team of driven individuals keen to make a difference. If you have the passion for creating great buildings, and the drive to deliver regenerative development on complex and challenging urban sites across central London, then please read on….”
