Tell us what you think of proposed changes to Charlton Place and Camden Passage

This consultation has ended

Start date 25 July 2022
End date 22 August 2022

As part of our commitment to make Islington a cleaner, greener and healthier place for all, we are proposing to deliver improvements to Charlton Place and Camden Passage.

This is an exciting opportunity to support Camden Passage and the Angel Town Centre with measures to benefit local businesses such as outdoor seating, pavement widening and planting.

We want to hear from local people, community groups, businesses and anyone who uses these streets about what you think of our proposed plans. Please fill in the short online questionnaire to tell us what you think.

Proposed changes to Charlton Place and Camden Passage

Local people have told us they are concerned about increases in:

  • traffic volumes
  • traffic speeds
  • vibrations
  • through traffic.

We have been looking at how we can improve safety and accessibility as well as make the area more attractive.

We have developed possible designs shown in Map 1 - Camden Passage and the wider area and Map 2 - Charlton Place and Camden Passage proposal. You can also access the maps in the 'Useful documents' section at the bottom of the page.

Map of proposed plans for Charlton Place and Camden Passage

We are proposing to:

  • Install a traffic restriction (e.g., a bollard, planter, or camera enforcement) at Charlton Place to stop vehicles driving through to Upper Street, while keeping access for vehicles from the south of Charlton Place
  • Allow people to cycle southbound down Charlton Place
  • Protect the unique local character and heritage of Camden Passage
  • Add measures to reinforce pedestrian priority across Camden passage with features such as tactile paving, blended crossings, and cycle signage on the pavement

To allow for the traffic restriction and turning vehicles on Charlton Place, we are proposing to make changes to parking:

  • Relocate 4 short stay parking bays to the south
  • Convert four residential parking bays into short stay parking
  • Create a flexible loading bay, which can be used by residents outside operational hours
  • Convert the existing short stay bay outside numbers 19-25 Charlton Place into a shared use resident / short stay bay
