The basic shopfront with the curve has been like that probably close to 20 years

Stephen, my understanding is that the permission was granted after appeal, subject to revised ABP conditions which included the following :
3(a) Details of all external shopfronts and signage shall be the subject of a separate planning permission.

I took a walk along Camden Street yesterday for the first time in ages and I have to say my epilepsy returned with a vengence. What an assault on the senses! Utter shopfront chaos. Some premises have made great efforts to design a frontage...others are monstrosities of plastic, garish colours and add-ons. Its wild west planning down there again.

Also really noticed how many restaurants and cafes have opened on the street. Its quite amazing how they all survive.

Camden Street Upper terrace owned by those 3 former guards is a disgrace of course...lots of tacky huckster businesses in painting the place bright pink and yellow...none of them seem to know what soap and water is....or how to sweep up. Scumbags.

Couldnt wait to get off it.

It seems Camden Street is to get a new hotel, to be located in the much abused terraced discussed previously. The last plans I say were for a zillion-seat "restaurant" that could only have been the foil for a superpub. The hotel will be a more sympathetic use one hopes.
