Camden Passage improvements
Traders in Camden Passage are gearing up for a busy summer following a series of improvements made to the popular and unique shopping street.
Shops were badly damaged by floods in December 2016, but the local community quickly rebounded and with the community fund from Thames Water, is back in business.
New cycle planters and built-out kerb, providing a colourful place to lock up your bike, have been installed in Charlton Place, lights have been installed around Pierrepont Arcade, and a new Camden Passage map has been created. The area also now features on the London tourist map.
Ongoing projects include widening the footpath and landscaping in both Charlton Place and Duncan Terrace, and fitting new gates at the entrance of Shalford Court.
Islington Council administers the fund, which was created to benefit the local community affected by the flood, and is working closely with angel.london and Camden Passage traders.
Christine Lovett, Chief Executive of angel.london said: “We’re delighted to have brought the businesses and the community together through a number of initiatives that will benefit Camden Passage for years to come.”
