The Brent Cross Cricklewood (BXC) Development Partners submitted an outline planning application to the council on 26 March 2008 for the comprehensive regeneration of the Brent Cross Cricklewood area. (Application Number C/17559/08).
The council issued planning consent for the Brent Cross Cricklewood Regeneration Area on 28 October 2010.
The Brent Cross Cricklewood Development Partners have now submitted a “Section 73” Planning Application to Barnet Council on 11 October 2013.
The Section 73 application is to modify a number of planning conditions to reflect the evolution of the scheme since outline planning permission was granted.
KEY CHANGES PROPOSED
The key changes to the scheme design can briefly be summarised as follows:
•A new pedestrian and cycle only bridge over the North Circular Road to improve connectivity across the site and provide better integration between the northern and southern parts of the new town centre. This will involve the reconfiguration of Market Square to the south of the A406.
•Alterations to the layout of development within Brent Cross East Development Zone (i.e. around a remodelled Brent Cross Shopping Centre) including the new pedestrian and cycle only bridge, as well as changes to the alignment of the River Brent and the reconfiguration of Brent Cross Main Square.
•Alterations to the phasing of the development to bring more of the Brent Cross East Development Zone into the earlier Phase 1 including all the proposed north side retail plot development and the new bus station.
•The highways infrastructure necessary to support the changes to the phasing of plot development is brought forward into the earlier Phase 1A. This will include the changes to the A406/A5/M1 junction and the A406/A41 junction as well as the new Living Bridge.
