Update 10:00 Evacuation of Chalcots Estate - Leader statement
LATEST 10:00 UPDATE “Hundreds of Camden Council employees, led by myself and the Chief Executive, worked right through the night to support residents from around 650 homes into alternative accommodation. This operation remains unprecedented in scale for Camden. “We have been further supported in this process by police and fire officers, the British Red Cross, and other voluntary partners. I thank all those who have played a part so far. “On the estate overnight we swiftly began work to address fire safety issues that the London Fire Brigade had identified and which led the Brigade to say late on Friday that residents should not remain in the buildings until these issues are resolved. “The concerted effort to carry out fire safety work overnight at the estate resulted in the fire service being satisfied that one of the blocks, Blashford (containing around 70 homes), did not need to be evacuated. “Two rest centres are housing a large number of residents, who have been provided with somewhere to sleep, food, drink and support. Many others were provided with hotel accommodation. “Social workers have worked to support vulnerable residents, and specialist care accommodation is available for those who need it. “Having to evacuate people from their homes is always going to be distressing for those residents, especially when we have to do it at such short notice. I know some residents are angry and upset, but I want to be very clear that Camden Council acted to protect them. Grenfell changed everything, and when told our blocks were unsafe to remain in, we acted. “We are now fully focussed on supporting our residents and their needs over the weekend and onwards.”

Updated 22:07 - Evacuation of Taplow block - Leader statement
22:07 UPDATE: We are evacuating residents from all five blocks, starting immediately. If you have friends or family you can stay with tonight please do so. If you do arrange to do this but need longer term accommodation please come to Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre tomorrow and we will help you find accommodation at no cost To ensure your safety we are door knocking the blocks one at a time. We are doing that in the following order: 1. Taplow 2. Burnham 3. Bray 4. Blashford 5. Dorney You will be able to get back into your block over the weekend to collect more of your possessions, however this will be under escort from the London Fire Brigade. In the meantime we recommend you pack a bag with enough items to last 2-4 weeks. 21:05 UPDATE : As a result of on-going checks the decision has been taken to decant residents from all five tower blocks at the Chalcots estate. We have council staff on site providing information and guidance to residents who are being provided with temporary accommodation. Where residents can stay with family and friends we are encouraging them to do this. But if this isn't possible we are providing temporary accommodation. Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, said: “Camden Council is absolutely determined to ensure that our residents are safe and we have promised them that we will work with them, continue to act swiftly and be open and transparent. “Last night the Chief Executive and I led a public meeting to listen to the concerns held by residents of the Chalcots estate. Upon hearing from residents we immediately instructed a joint fire inspection with the London Fire Brigade. “Today the London Fire Brigade completed a joint inspection of the blocks with Camden Council technical experts. Together we decided that the Taplow block needs to be temporarily decanted while we undertake urgent fire safety works so that residents can be fully assured of their safety. This means that we need to move residents from their homes and into temporary accommodation. “We anticipate that these works will be completed within three to four weeks. We realise that this is hugely distressing for everyone affected and we will be doing all we can, alongside the London Fire Brigade and other authorities, to support our residents at this difficult time. The Grenfell fire changes everything – we need to do everything we can to keep residents safe. “You will appreciate that this is an emerging situation and we will be providing regular updates.” Follow @camdentalking and camden.gov.uk/news

Have your say on Euston
The Council has developed principles for a plan to guide development around and above Euston station, and we want to know what you think. Euston station is changing, with HS2 Ltd preparing for construction, and Network Rail, Crossrail 2 and Transport for London also thinking about how to design the station. A fully redeveloped station would maximise opportunities for new homes, jobs, open space and routes through and around the station. We are preparing a plan for development in the Euston station and tracks area with the Greater London Authority and Transport for London, which will both inform, and be informed by, emerging designs for the stations at Euston. Get involved We have prepared some principles to guide the plan, and want feedback on these from residents, community groups, voluntary organisations, businesses and anyone who uses the station. The overarching principle is to design Euston as a new piece of city with a world-class station, and a mix of homes (including genuinely affordable housing), economic uses, open space and cultural facilities, which knits into and reconnects existing communities and areas. The key principles that we think help to achieve this include: Best use of space An outward looking-station, fostering stronger relationships with nearby communities and places Respecting the history of Euston Designing for the future Boosting the economy Quality open space A network of healthy streets to link into the surrounding area. Read more about the principles and give us your views by 5pm on Monday 3 July. We will use your feedback to refine the principles and help shape a draft planning brief for the Euston station area, which we will consult on next year. Drop-in events You can also come along to a drop-in event to learn more and give comments: Tuesday 13 June 12.30 to 7.30pm St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre (Francis Crick Institute) 2 Ossulston Street, NW1 1DF Wednesday 14 June 9.30am to 12.30pm Ampthill Square Tenants Hall, Barnby Street (opposite Stoutbeck), NW1 2RS Thursday 15 June 5.45 to 8.15pm HPod, Cumberland Market, Regent's Park Estate, NW1 3RH Tuesday 20 June 9am to 12 noon Surma Community Centre, 1 Robert Street, London, NW1 3JU Find out more Visit our Euston Area Plan website Sign up for updates on planning in Euston Visit our HS2 webpages.

Go to Bloomsbury

Bloomsbury

Bloomsbury is an area of the London Borough of Camden, in central London, between Euston Road and Holborn, developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fashionable residential area.

The earliest record of what would become Bloomsbury is the 1086 Domesday Book, which records that the area had vineyards and 'wood for 100 pigs'. But it is not until 1201 that the name Bloomsbury is first noted, when William de Blemond, a Norman landowner, acquired the land.

The name Bloomsbury is a development from Blemondisberi – the bury, or manor, of Blemond. An 1878 publication, Old and New London: Volume 4, mentions the idea that the area was named after a village called Lomesbury which formerly stood where Bloomsbury Square is now, though this piece of folk etymology is now discredited.

At the end of the 14th century Edward III acquired Blemond's manor, and passed it on to the Carthusian monks of the London Charterhouse, who kept the area mostly rural.

In the 16th century, with the Dissolution of the Monasteries, Henry VIII took the land back into the possession of the Crown, and granted it to Thomas Wriothesley, 1st Earl of Southampton.

In the early 1660s, the Earl of Southampton constructed what eventually became Bloomsbury Square. The area was laid out mainly in the 18th century, largely by landowners such as Wriothesley Russell, 3rd Duke of Bedford, who built Bloomsbury Market, which opened in 1730. The major development of the squares that we see today started in about 1800 when Francis Russell, 5th Duke of Bedford removed Bedford House and developed the land to the north with Russell Square as its centrepiece.

Historically, Bloomsbury is associated with the arts, education, and medicine. The area gives its name to the Bloomsbury Group of artists, the most famous of whom was Virginia Woolf, who met in private homes in the area in the early 1900s, and to the lesser known Bloomsbury Gang of Whigs formed in 1765 by John Russell, 4th Duke of Bedford.

The publisher Faber & Faber used to be located in Queen Square, though at the time T. S. Eliot was editor the offices were in Tavistock Square. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was founded in John Millais's parents' house on Gower Street in 1848.

The Bloomsbury Festival was launched in 2006 when local resident Roma Backhouse was commissioned to mark the re-opening of the Brunswick Centre, a residential and shopping area. The free festival is a celebration of the local area, partnering with galleries, libraries and museums, and achieved charitable status at the end of 2012.

John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
