KENTISH TOWN Location: Kentish Town, London NW5 Client: London Borough of Camden The London Borough of Camden appointed Dally Henderson to undertake a Town Centre Enhancement Study for Kentish Town centre. The study formed part of the first stage of a Town Centre Project funded by Transport for London and Camden and focused specifically on urban design proposals and street improvements. This busy north London route is a popular shopping area, but suffers from high volumes of traffic. Provision for pedestrians is poor, with car dominated streets, narrow congested pavements and the few public spaces uninviting and of low quality. The study required a detailed streetscape audit and analysis. Initial concepts were developed and these formed part of the first stage public consultation. The results from this initial consultation provided a key tool in the development of detailed proposals. Further detailed plans and perspective sketches were produced to form part of a more extensive public consultation along with budget costings. Recommendations included the improvement of ‘gateway’ locations such as Prince of Wales Road / Castlehaven Road, removal of pedestrian/vehicle conflicts, creation of small squares and pocket parks, upgrading street lighting and repaving footways and provision for new market stalls and outdoor seating areas. The report formed part of a successful £1M bid for funding from TfL, with proposals subsequently being implemented.
