Barnet Playing Fields and King George V Playing Fields – Master Planning engagement Phase 2: Draft Masterplan

This consultation has now closed.

Overview

Barnet has a great collection of parks and open spaces and these are an important part of what makes Barnet a green and family friendly borough. This consultation is asking for your views on Phase 2 of the proposed improvements to Barnet Playing Fields and King George V Playing Field (the location of the park is on the map at the bottom of the page). We previously asked for your thoughts on possible options for the area and, as a result, we have created a draft Master Plan. Now, in Phase 2, we ask that you comment on the draft Master Plan.

Background

Barnet Council has appointed The Sport, Leisure and Culture Consultancy (SLC) to undertake an appraisal of the options available to the Council for the development and creation of a sports hub and associated community facilities at Barnet Playing Fields and King George V Playing Fields, in line with the recommendations of the Parks and Opens Spaces Strategy and Playing Pitch Strategy.

Earlier this year, SLC undertook initial public engagement with the local community to get a better understanding of what improvements residents would most like to see at Barnet Playing Fields and King George V Playing Fields. Over 135 responses were received. Informed by this initial engagement, SLC has developed a draft masterplan for Barnet Playing Fields and King George V Playing Fields which shows the proposed improvements.

What are we seeking your views on?

This consultation is asking for your views on the draft masterplan which can be found in the Document Library on the bottom right of this page. There is also a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document in the Document Library answering some questions on the project.

Specifically, we are seeking your views on:

  • the facilities proposed within the draft masterplan
  • the layout and location of the proposed facilities within the draft masterplan
  • any comments you may have on the overall draft masterplan.

Give us your views

Please give us your views on the draft masterplan by completing the online questionnaire. We welcome responses from everyone including organisations interested in the future development of these sites. We would also like to hear the views of people from outside the London Borough of Barnet area.

To request a questionnaire in an alternative format, please:

  • email: nicola.cross@barnet.gov.uk,
  • telephone 020 8359 7404, or
  • write to us at: Greenspaces, London Borough of Barnet, North London Business Park, Oakleigh Road South, London, N11 1NP.

SLC is also running a public drop-in session, so you can come and look at the draft masterplan and provide feedback. SLC staff will be on hand to answer your questions.
