High Street, Barnet Pedestrian Improvements - Statutory Consultation

In March 2017 we carried out an informal consultation on a proposal to introduce new measures in and around Barnet High Street to create a safer environment for all users of the public highway. The proposed measures aim to provide a more pleasant experience of the High Street and improve pedestrian safety.

The proposal has now been revised in response to your feedback to certain elements of the scheme during the informal consultation. The revised scheme was submitted to the Chipping Barnet Area Committee in February 2018, where it was agreed to proceed with this statutory consultation.

The revised scheme incorporates the following measures:

  • Removing much of the parking along the western side of the High street, and widening the pedestrian footway to provide a safer and more enjoyable shopping experience.
  • Upgrade of existing pedestrian crossings, with the added advantage of a shorter crossing width. This should reduce queueing times at the crossing.
  • Proposed new ‘at any time’ waiting restrictions on the High Street, as indicated on the attached plan.
  • Proposed new loading restrictions on the High Street and at the junctions of High Street with Union Street and Salisbury Road.
  • Introduction of trees, where physically possible, to both improve the look of the area and have a beneficial effect on the air quality.
  • Introduction of cycle stands to promote sustainable transport and provide secure cycling parking. New benches are proposed to encourage people to stop in the area and enjoy the ambience of the rejuvenated High Street. New bins are also proposed to promote a litter-free High Street.

If you would like to view a plan for further details then please attend one of our unmanned drop in sections at Chipping Barnet Library, the plans will be on show in the entrance hall for all to view.
