Victoria Park, Finchley – Public Consultation

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 proposed improvements to Victoria Park which is in Church End, Finchley (close to Finchley Central and West Finchley tube stations). You can see the location of Victoria Park on the map at the bottom of this page.

Background

The council sold The Lodge in Victoria Park in 2015 and it is a requirement that any funds raised from the sale will only be spent on Victoria Park. Following on from this decision the council appointed Groundwork London (GWL) to identify how best to use this money to enhance the park and its facilities.

Earlier this year GWL consulted with the local community to get a better understanding of the priorities and improvements that residents would most like to see. Over 400 survey responses were received. Based on the findings of this engagement, GWL have drafted a Master Plan complete with design options, and this is the full public consultation on the draft Master Plan.

What are we seeking your views on?

  • the options proposed for play, tennis and a multi-use games area
  • your preference as to what work should be done with the money that is available
  • any comments you may have on the overall draft Master Plan.

How can you give us your views?

  • the council is also running a series of pop up events in the park, so you can come down, look at the overall draft Master Plan and the two options proposed for play, tennis and a multi-use games area. Council staff will be on hand to answer your questions.
