Overview

Barnet and Harrow councils are jointly preparing the draft Edgware Growth Area Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to guide how Edgware Town Centre can successfully undergo renewal and serve as a destination for local residents and businesses.

Edgware Town Centre has a diverse character, vibrant community and excellent shopping opportunities. The planning framework will:

  • Support redevelopment of key sites to reflect Edgware’s status as a major town centre;
  • Reinforce the role of the high street;
  • Provide new public spaces and make the street environment more attractive;
  • Celebrate local heritage;
  • Improve the environment for pedestrians and cyclists;
  • Provide better options for more sustainable transport and safe and active movement;
  • Provide opportunities for new high-quality homes, including affordable housing.

The draft Edgware Growth Area SPD is supported by the following documents:

Why we are consulting?

Once adopted, the SPD will provide a material consideration for the determination of planning applications within the SPD boundary.

Barnet and Harrow Councils are undertaking joint consultation on this draft SPD and welcome your input. We want to hear the views of local residents, visitors, businesses and stakeholders. It is important that residents and other interested parties have their say on the emerging plan.

Due to Covid-19 and the continuing requirements for social distancing and the limitations on groups gathering indoors, all consultation sessions will be held online.
