The Euston Area Plan, which I prepared jointly with Camden states that open space lost as a consequence of the HS2 project should be re-provided as part of redevelopment in and around Euston Station and that replacement must be at least the equivalent amount of space as that lost and of higher quality where possible.

The plan also states that during construction support will be given to the positive use of any vacant spaces for appropriate active temporary use such as food growing/ allotments, play space and temporary open space.
