About us

Our founding principles are simple

Residents are the heart of the community

It is time we had a voice

Bloomsbury Residents’ Action Group (BRAG

Bloomsbury Residents’ Action Group (BRAG) comprises a group of local residents, from Judd Street and the surrounding area, who are suffering from the detrimental and dangerous consequences of the current traffic flow changes imposed by Camden Council and highly apprehensive about the additional ones proposed by Camden Council and TfL.

The inaugural meeting of the Bloomsbury Residents’ Action Group was held on 26th May. We welcome local residents who care about the local environment and about the safety and health of residents, cyclists and pedestrians, to join us.   We also welcome local businesses and institutions, whose work lives have also been severely disrupted, to contribute to our campaign to make Bloomsbury a place which is accessible, safe and healthy to live and work – and where ordinary people can lead ordinary lives.

BRAG has a keen interest in all aspect of life in the neighbourhood, but for the moment, we are focusing our activities on addressing the recent traffic problems.

Residents are the heart of the community


In making local changes, Camden Council is listening to large corporates and lobby groups, but not to residents.(1)

We, the residents, care more than anyone about the local area and the local community; we suffer the detrimental consequences of bad Council decisions; we have experience and knowledge and can offer solutions to local problems.

We are all pedestrians and we include cyclists, people with family responsibilities and people with impaired mobility; we want a safe and workable environment for all.
