Investing in Camden

We don't just build beautiful new homes. Created and managed by Camden Council,
The Camden Collection is a major contributor
to the Borough's Community Investment
Programme (CIP).

By building these new homes for sale and
market rent, The Camden Collection generates
revenue which is in turn reinvested into CIP
to benefit the wider community.

Better London Living

What is CIP?

The Community Investment Programme (CIP) is our ambitious plan to invest over £1 billion in homes, schools and community spaces in Camden. It’s our answer to government spending cuts – an innovative way to continue building in our communities despite massive reductions in central government funding.

Through the programme we’re building 3,050 new homes, including 1,100 council homes and 300 at genuinely affordable Camden Living rents. We’re also investing in 48 schools and children’s centres and building new community facilities.

Each scheme is designed in partnership with residents and delivered directly by the Council, giving local people the chance to have their say and shape plans for their community.

How it Works

To date the Council have built 991 homes through CIP and have another 285 under construction and planning permission for a further 1,000.  To date the Council have built 991 homes through CIP and have another 285 under construction and planning permission for a further 1,000.These homes include hundreds of additional and replacement council homes, providing residents modern, energy efficient housing.

We’ve invested £165 million into schools and children’s centres including the completion of three new primary school buildings. We’ve also built new community facilities like the St Pancras Community Centre and the Greenwood Centre - Camden’s first Centre for Independent Living, run by disabled people, for disabled people. We will complete two new community centres and a health centre later this year.  We've refurbished old hostels into state-of-the-art accommodation and training facilities for homeless people.

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. Every pound raised through these sales is reinvested back into Camden – for the benefit of residents today and in the future.
