Camden LBC has submitted bids to government which could be worth up to £60m over the next five years, to tackle six run down estates, including one in King's Cross.
The selected estates suffer from wide-ranging physical and social problems, and if the money is granted the council will go ahead with schemes worked out with tenants the council can start re-building the borough's housing and reviving communities, said Charlie Hedges, chair of Camden's housing committee.
Extra private and public sector finance is vital to unlock the potential of Kings Cross, whose problems have been widely reported in the press, said Camden council. Government announcements of the successful bids are expected around the New Year.
