Euston Area Plan for consultation

EAP consultation map and text resized

Euston Station is Victorian Kings Cross station’s great niece from the 1960s in some sort of weird Oscar Wilde play.

‘To lose one high speed proposal may be regarded as a misfortune….’

anyway an important consultation document has just come out, the Euston Area Plan.  I haven’t read it yet but some aspects will be of interest to our audience, such as:

‘7. Improving the environment along Euston Road: for pedestrians and cyclists’

As long term area planning sufferers in Kings Cross will know, this Euston Area Plan will be very important for setting the parameters for the subsequent re-working of Euston. I may post something on it over the summer if there are topics of interest to KX.  There is a confusing mix of websites, including a bespoke one for the plan but the gist is that:

‘Consultation on the draft Euston Area Plan is now underway. Consultation on the draft plan and Sustainability Appraisal Report will run from 29th July to 7th October.

Here is the Euston Area Plan – 128 pages. Here is a summary of the plan as some boards from an exhibition.

The plan provides a framework for change in the Euston area over the next 20 years, and has been jointly prepared by Camden Council, the Greater London Authority and Transport for London. It seeks to ensure that, whether or not the new High Speed rail link (HS2) goes ahead, despite Camden Council’s strong opposition to HS2, we can get the best possible future for the residents, businesses and visitors to Euston.’
