Colindale Park improvements 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. The council wants to ensure that they are of the best possible quality and designed with the residents who will use them in mind. We are currently working on improving the parks in Colindale. The first two parks, Montrose Playing Fields and Silkstream Park are nearing completion and we would now like to hear your views on the proposed improvements to Colindale Park.

Background

In 2017, Barnet Council developed a Parks and Opens Spaces Strategy which reviewed the parks in Barnet and put forward suggestions for their development. One of these was to explore options for improvement to Colindale Park. We have now appointed EVA Studio, together with LUC and Civic Engineers, to undertake a full appraisal of the options available to Colindale Park.

How have we involved the community so far in developing our plans

Earlier this year we asked residents, users of the parks and local ward councillors for their feedback on the park, to get a better understanding of what improvements they would most like to see. Based on this initial feedback EVA Studio have now developed the draft masterplan for Colindale Park.

What we are seeking your views on

We would like to hear your views on the design. Even if you don’t currently use the park, we still welcome your views. You can view the draft masterplan and how we acted on your previous feedback here.

Give us your views

Please take the time to view the draft masterplan and give us your views by completing the online questionnaire.

We will also be holding a drop-session where you can view the plans and ask any questions. This will take place on Saturday 23rd November from 10:30am -1.00pm at Colindale Park.

We welcome responses from everyone including organisations interested in the future development of these parks. We would also like to hear the views of people from outside the London Borough of Barnet area.
