We aim to increase the number of Parklets around the Borough to both discourage car ownership and give space back to the community.

What is a Parklet?

A Parklet is a car parking space that has been converted into a community space for something more environmentally and community focused such as bike racks, seating areas, or green space. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people are working from home, reducing their general travel, and choosing instead to enjoy their local environment. There has also been a rise in cycling and walking, and London needs to adapt to this change.

An increase in Parklets on our streets will result in increased active travel, a greater reduction in vehicle emissions, benefits to local businesses, and increased green space that is there for the community to enjoy.

What are we doing?

Following our hard work these community areas are now the focus of Camden’s Test & Learn Officer Group. We have been awarded the honour of proposing a Parklet prototype in order to develop and eventually launch the Camden Parklet Scheme in 2022.

We submitted for the Parklet to be located on Antrim Road, Belsize Park, and have secured 80+ signatures from the community in support of this. For Camden Clean Air the answer to improved air quality is 3-fold; less vehicle emissions through the promotion of active travel, focus on the local community, and increased green space. Our Parklet proposal will therefore include all three of these features. Show your support by signing our Parklet Petition today.

Get Involved

We are currently estimating the build to be around £12,000 and are looking for either one brand to invest in the entire build or to be part of a community build where the elements are provided by local businesses making this Parklet built by and made for the Camden Community. If you would like to learn more, please get in touch.
