The CGCA plays a strategic role in the future of the Covent Garden neighbourhood. We do this through close monitoring of and robust responses to planning and licensing applications and issues such as housing, traffic management, street lighting and the public realm and public safety.


The CGCA aims to be a neighbour – a neighbour with specialised knowledge and skill gained from years of experience of successful negotiations with local authorities, central government, major developers and all the other powers that be.

The CGCA receives no revenue funding and relies on the generosity of its stalwart volunteers and supporters to continue its work.  If you live or work in Covent Garden, or if you are a visitor who loves this very special part of Central London, please support our work by becoming a member of the CGCA or by volunteering. Donations, be they modest or munificent, are also very welcome.
