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, Groundwork GDS were asked to provide an analytical breakdown of the demographics of the population in the affected area. Maps were created using the 2011 Census at Output Area level, which is the most detailed statistical area available publicly. Yearly population estimates released by the Ordinency Survey at Lower Super Output Area level were also used. This could then be used to identify groups that need to be targeted to participate in the engagement programme. The findings of the engagment can be found here.
