HS2 Greenspace Engagement

Groundwork London were commissioned by the London Borough of Camden to engage with local residents on the removal of green space around Euston station, caused by the expansion of Euston station in preparation for HS2. Any removed green space will have to be relocated elsewhere to ensure the total area of green space surrounding Euston does not decrease. The engagement process aimed to understand to which area local residents would prefer this green space be relocated. As part of this work, we were asked to provide an analytical breakdown of the demographics of the population in the affected area. This could then be used to identify groups that need to be targeted to participate in the engagement programme. The published report can be found here.


Available below are examples of the maps we produced for the final report. Most were created using the 2011 Census at Output Area level, which is the most detailed statistical area available publicly. We also used the yearly population estimates released by the ONS at Lower Super Output Area level. Throughout the project, we aimed to reduce the number of maps required to show the data. For example, instead of producing separate Choropleth Maps for each ethnicity we grouped them into four basic categories. This made it possible to display all four maps on the same page, allowing for side by side comparison.
