London, 20th November 2023: Planning permission to enhance areas of Camden Market has been given the green light from the Mayor’s office. As part of the application, LabTech will develop the West Yard, open the historic East Vaults and Dead Dog Basin to the public and local community for the first time, create a new arts and exhibition space and install a temporary observation wheel, attracting a diverse audience, interested in the culture and history of Camden Town.
The area will form a cultural focal point for Camden; the temporary observation wheel – in place for five years – will feature pods dedicated to Camden’s music history. Whilst the wheel will be a new landmark attraction for London, the flexible exhibition space will feature cultural events and experiences, attracting more visitors to the area, as well as engaging the local community, particularly those interested in the area’s rich heritage.
Maggie Milosavljevic, Commercial Director of LabTech commented:
“Securing this approval marks a milestone for Camden Market. The scheme will re-establish Camden
Town as a leading destination for culture in London, diversifying and increasing footfall, which in turn,
will benefit our local traders and independent retailers, who we are committed to supporting.”
