Residents lead the way on Camden’s future
On Thursday 7 December, residents from across the borough met to share their thoughts and ideas about the future of Camden with local councillors and partners, including the police and health service. Topics discussed included how to make sure everyone in Camden has access to jobs to feel financially secure, to better and more affordable homes, making sure communities are safe, strong and open, that the environment is cleaner, and how to make sure Camden is a place that everyone respects. Above all, residents felt that in 2025 everyone should be treated fairly and equally and have access to the same opportunities, wherever they live. The Citizens’ Assembly has now met three times for in depth discussions about Camden’s strengths and to share ideas about how to tackle the borough’s challenges. Leader of Camden Council, Cllr Georgia Gould, said: “I wanted us to try a different approach where we handed over to a group of residents representing every part of our community to shape together our vision and priorities for the future. The results have been beyond anything I expected and it has been a privilege to follow the discussions. The Assembly has strengthened my view that Camden’s citizens are the most important resource we have. One Assembly member said that we can’t afford for there to be any lost voices in Camden. And I want this Assembly to be start of a new approach that draws on the ideas and energy of every resident of Camden.” The Citizens’ Assembly is just one way we’re looking to bring residents closer to the decision-making process in Camden. We are currently developing a new plan for Camden up to 2025 and invite anyone who lives, works or studies in Camden to share their thoughts and ideas. These will be fed back to councillors to help shape the borough’s future over the next seven years.

Taskforce to help young people stay safe
Camden has launched a new Youth Safety Taskforce to look at this growing issue of concern. The borough has seen an eight per cent rise in knife crime with injuries in the last year, according to the latest official crime figures, with young people often the victims of this crime. This is well below the London-wide increase of 18% over the same period (October 2016 to September 2017), compared with the previous year. The council, police and other local partners, such as voluntary youth services, are keen to look at the causes of the smaller but still significant increase in Camden and come up with possible solutions to the problem before it gets any worse. Our local politicians and senior council officers will be getting together with local police chiefs, voluntary youth services, young people and parents as part of the Camden Youth Safety Taskforce, which will also look at how young people are sometimes the victims of knife crime. We want every young person to grow up safely in our borough with access to all the opportunities Camden has to offer. The taskforce will be working with parents and carers, young people, voluntary youth services, our local police and MPs. At the same time, the council is continuing to invest in youth services, ensuring young people have the support they need to thrive. Councillor Abdul Hai, Camden Council’s Cabinet Member for Young People and Cohesion, is co-chairing the borough’s new taskforce with Holborn and St Pancras MP Keir Starmer. Cllr Hai said: “We have a good record in Camden of promoting community cohesion and helping to prevent youth violence. However, recent trends mean we have to take a fresh look at this issue and how best to tackle it. The taskforce will help us to hear from as wide a group of people as possible. Young people are sometimes the victims of violent crime and we need to make sure our young people can feel safe on the streets of Camden and that we listen to their concerns.” Keir Starmer MP said: “This is a really important initiative from Camden Council. There has been a worrying increase in youth violence in Camden and indeed across London. There is no doubt that more must be done to tackle this issue and ensure young people have the support they need to stay safe and avoid being caught up in the criminal justice system. I’m absolutely committed to working with the council and the community on this issue, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to co-chair the taskforce with Councillor Hai.” Detective Superintendent Caroline Haines, the senior Met Police lead for knife crime in Camden and Islington, said: “Rising youth violence and knife crime is sadly a reality facing much of London. We are absolutely committed to the Youth Safety Taskforce and welcome the opportunity of working together with our community and partners to ensure we are doing everything we can to keep the young people of Camden safe and confident. We will look to build on some of the excellent partnership activity that is already ongoing, but having input from the local community is also key and that is why I am really excited about the new taskforce.” The Youth Safety Taskforce, which held its first extended meeting for community partners today (Friday, 15 December), will: examine patterns of youth offending and violence in Camden and across London, using the latest data and research look at youth services in Camden, which are still relatively well-funded compared with other parts of the country and despite cuts to our budget by the government see what we can learn from initiatives in other cities – for example, recent work to combat youth gangs and violence in Manchester look at the role of social media in provoking or helping to instigate youth violence and victimisation find out how it feels to be a young person in Camden and hear from victims of youth violence and their families. Further information: Members of the Camden Youth Safety Taskforce include representatives from the Metropolitan Police, voluntary youth sector, Camden’s Youth MP, senior council officers and local politicians, including the Leader of the Council and Leader of the Opposition The taskforce is co-chaired by Councillor Abdul Hai, Camden Council’s Cabinet Member for Young People and Cohesion, and Holborn and St Pancras MP, Keir Starmer Its initial findings will be shared in March 2018, with a report due in June For more details, visit camden.gov.uk/youthsafetytaskforce Camden is also supporting the Mayor of London’s campaign to deter young people from carrying knives, which is called ‘London Needs You Alive’.

Kentish Town

Kentish Town station is a London Underground and National Rail station in the London Borough of Camden in Travelcard Zone 2.

Kentish Town is first recorded during the reign of King John (1208) as Kentisston. By 1456 Kentish Town was recognised as a thriving hamlet, and in this period a chapel of ease is recorded as being built for the inhabitants.

The early 19th century brought a lot of modernisation, causing a lot of the area's rural charm, the River Fleet and the 18th century buildings to vanish.

Large amounts of land were purchased to build the first railway through the area, which can still be seen today. Kentish Town was a prime site for development as the Kentish Town Road was the main route for the growing city of London to the South.

1877 saw the beginning of mission work in the area as it was, by then, poor. The mission first held their services outside but as their funding increased they built a mission house, chapel, and vicarage.

In 1912 the Church of St Silas the Martyr was finally erected and consecrated, and by December of that year it became a parish in its own right.

Kentish Town was to see further modernisation in the post-World War II period. This means that there are few signs of 19th century influence left in the area.

Today Kentish Town is a busy shopping and business area. It offers libraries, gyms and other entertainments to visitors and its community.

The station was opened by the Midland Railway in 1868 on the extension to its new London terminal at St Pancras.

The separate London Underground station was opened on 22 June 1907 by the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway (CCE&HR), a precursor of the Northern line. The station was designed by Leslie Green with the ox-blood red glazed terracotta facade and the semi-circular windows at first floor level common to most of the original stations on the CCE&HR and its two associated railways, the Baker Street & Waterloo Railway and Great Northern Piccadilly & Brompton Railway which opened the previous year.

John Rocque Map of Hampstead (1762).
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 of Hampstead covers an area stretching from the edge in the northwest of present-day Dollis Hill to Islington in the southeast.
