The Trial

The trial in Tavistock Place and Torrington Place started on 23rd November 2015 and  lasted for eighteen months. At the end of a year, Camden Council is consulted local residents, businesses and regular users of the street on the changes. See the consultation ===>

This page was written as background for that consultation.
