Camden plans to expand Hawley Infants School
Camden Council has asked for feedback on proposals for a 100-year-old infant school to treble in size and admit older children aged seven to 11.
Hawley Infants School, currently one of the few in the borough catering for infant pupils only, does not have space on-site to expand.
New proposals are being considered for it to move from its current site in Buck Street, Camden Town, to the Hawley Wharf canal-side development and increase in size to admit junior aged pupils. This would depend on the development being approved.
Developers are due to submit new plans for the Hawley Wharf development of flats and shops on Regent’s Canal this week.
If plans are approved, it would move into the proposed residential and retail development just 300 metres from its current site in Buck Street.

In addition, the scheme would be paid for by the developer of the residential scheme.
The move would save Camden Council �224,000 in repairs to the current site.
