Charlie: What do you think Camden will look like in 50 years’ time?

Guides: It will continue to be the cultural heart of London, attracting artists, performers and writers. Its large student community will keep the focus on emerging trends and the multi-racial and multi-cultural mix will ensure an active café culture. We also hope Camden will be internationally recognised as a centre of knowledge and start-ups; specifically in health (UCL, RFH and Crick).

Hopefully the challenge of providing truly affordable housing within a central London borough will have been overcome so that there is a genuine mixed community. If not Camdenwill lose its diverse and edgy nature.

We also see an opportunity to create another King's Cross-style area around Euston station and to consider sustainability issues more - we've already a good position, but should improve.Traffic will be electric, and more roads will be closed or underground or replaced by public transits - freeing the Euston Road to be a linear park!
