We are inviting all who live, work, study and visit the Colindale area to vote on the name for the square outside our office at 2 Bristol Avenue, NW9 4EW.

The square is currently in the process of being revamped to create new seating and new landscaping to improve the look of the area.

To reflect Colindale’s close links to the Royal Air Force since 1914, the council has shortlisted four potential names from the eight female Tiger Moth pilots, known as the First Eight, in the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) during the second World War. Each pilot played her part during the war and left a lasting legacy to others. Four of the pilot’s names could not be chosen as part of this process as the surnames were either not compliant with street naming policy or recommendations from the Emergency Services.


What are the four choices?

The four shortlisted choices are below, and you can read more about each of the pilots by clicking on their name:

What happens after the poll closes?

Once the poll has closed, the name with the most votes will be put forward to the council’s Street Naming and Numbering Team for approval. There is then a requirement to undertake a statutory consultation for a period of four weeks. If an objection is received there will be an opportunity for the second and third ranked names to be considered following a further four-week statutory consultation.

The final decision on the name of the square will be published on this page.

In addition to this, all pilot’s names will be celebrated collectively with a plaque in their honour installed either on the exterior or inside the Barnet Council office.
