Sarah Hayward: Our position is very much based on the details of this individual proposal. Camden has a history of big regeneration projects—indeed, it is unique as the only borough in the country that has regeneration with high-speed rail partially as its anchor in the King’s Cross railway lands. This scheme would be devastating to Camden and, as it stands at the moment with the scaled back station proposals, would actually lose us jobs and opportunities, rather than be an engine for growth as the Government currently claim.
