Draft Growth Strategy 2030 Consultation

This consultation has closed.

Overview

The council is consulting on its draft Growth Strategy. The strategy sets out the council's role and our priorities for regeneration, development and business, employment and skills activity across the borough from 2019 to 2030.

Background

The Growth Strategy responds to expected economic, social and environmental trends to 2030, including a significantly growing and aging local population, changes in the employment market and how we work, how we use our high streets, as well as environmental concerns. To ensure Barnet continues to be a pleasant and well-maintained place to live, work and visit, the Growth Strategy sets a direction for change by addressing requirements to increase the housing supply, supporting places across the borough most in need of investment, and maximising the benefits of growth for residents to ensure we continue to offer top-class education, great open spaces, and a good quality of life.

To find out more about our plans, please take the time to read our summary consultation document and the full strategy. Background papers on how we have developed our strategy are also provided in the Document Library on this page.

What are we seeking your views on?

The consultation is seeking your views on a range of themes included in the strategy, in particular we are asking for your views on:

  • our proposed guiding principles for the Growth Strategy
  • our approach to growth across five themes, and the objectives that sit under each theme
  • our area based approach to growth, and infrastructure priorities across the borough
  • if you think we have missed anything in the strategy
  • any further comments you may have on the strategy overall.

The consultation is open to all our residents, businesses, workers, organisations, community groups, and anyone else who has an interest in the area, including those from outside of the London Borough of Barnet.

How can you give us your views:

  • Please take the time to read the read our summary consultation document and the full strategy before completing our online questionnaire.
  • We are also running a series of public events for the draft Growth strategy, where you can come along and view the strategy. Council staff and representatives will be on hand to discuss the priorities and objectives, and answer any questions.
