“Shaping the future of the King’s Cross Area”: a very strange shape for the area.

Gasholder Camden has released a consultation paper on “Shaping the future of the King’s Cross Area”.  Local groups can express their views on the key issues for the plan at two meetings (on 28 and 30 October)  and also send comments in writing. The paper discusses the issues for various neighbourhoods near King’s Cross and says:

“The plan for the Kings Cross area … is intended to cover a relatively wide area which includes the station area on Euston Road, Somers Town to the west, the Camley Street area to the north-west and Maiden Lane estate to the north. It’s important to consider such a wide area because of the likely impacts and opportunities of Kings Cross investment for all of these neighbourhoods.”

This “relatively wide area” excludes everywhere to the east (or to the south) of King’s Cross.  The paper is another fine example of failing to join up with Islington.

The consultation paper is available here.
