Overview

The Brent Cross Cricklewood development is Barnet Council’s most significant growth and regeneration programme. The vision of the Council and its partners is to create a thriving town centre with attractive and high quality houses and green spaces. Alongside a modernised shopping centre, the development will be served by an additional train station, and a new high street providing local shops, restaurants and offices. We want the area to be a vibrant place to live, work and socialise.

A new station, sooner

This regeneration will be underpinned by a number of major transport infrastructure improvements. The most significant of these will be a new Thameslink railway station, delivered by Barnet Council with Network Rail, which will link the Brent Cross Cricklewood development to King’s Cross St Pancras in less than 15 minutes.

We are now planning to bring forward the rail-related projects earlier in the overall development programme than previously envisaged, inlcuding delivering the new Thameslink station in 2022 instead of 2031. This will ensure that the new station is open far earlier than previously planned, supporting the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration as a whole and also providing new transport links to existing local residents.

Why we are consulting

Planning permission for the Brent Cross Cricklewood project was first granted in 2010 (ref. C/17559/08) and subsequently amended in 2014 (ref. F/04687/13).

The planning permission allows for the timing and content of the phases of the project to be amended as necessary, subject to technical assessments and approval.

We’re keen to hear your views before we submit an application to allow the new Thameslink station and other rail-related sites to be constructed at the same time, and see the new station open to the public in 2022.

To find out more about our proposals, please take the time to read our project update.

Please note, the council has commissioned the strategic communications team at GL Hearn, a property consultancy, to administer the consultation on its behalf and to analyse the responses and report on the findings.
