Works to revamp Oriel Place will not be completed until Spring 2021, due to delays from coronavirus.
Renovation began in February to open up the courtyard space. The historic railings which fenced it off from the alley have been removed, and plans included new benches, replacing the pavement and planting a hedge in the area.
The project had been controversial, with neighbours citing fears about an increase in antisocial behaviour when completed.
The pandemic saw work halted in March, with the fencing erected for the project becoming home to lockdown poems by local David Dinnell.
A Camden Council spokesperson has confirmed work will resume in the next few weeks, including repairing street lights and installing CCTV cameras.
