Plans for flats above Camden People’s Theatre in London postponed

2nd September 2015

Ross Anthony, Planning Adviser from The Theatres Trust, has been quoted in The Stage

Plans to develop residential flats above Camden People’s Theatre have been deferred after the local council agreed to look further into the effects they could have on the theatre.

The proposals concerning CPT are being put forward by the London Borough of Camden. After objections from the theatre, Arts Council England and The Theatres Trust, the council agreed to defer considering the application until later this month in order to address objections to the lack of sufficient sound insulation in the plans.

In a letter to the council, The Theatres Trust adviser Ross Anthony warned that without sufficient safeguards, such as insulation, the residential use would “jeopardise the theatre’s operation” and could cause disputes between residents and the theatre operator.
