Meet the Cricklewood Town Team

The Cricklewood Town Team (previously Cricklewood Improvement Programme – CIP) was created by Cricklewood Homeless Concern in partnership with a group of Cricklewood residents towards the end of 2010. A steering group was formed, motivated in part by the ideology of the Big Society, and chose to focus on creating a climate for change that encourages local people in Cricklewood to take charge of and lead on the development of Cricklewood, making it a great place to live, work or visit.

Cricklewood straddles the junction of three London boroughs and more immediately three wards i.e. Mapesbury (Brent), Childs Hill (Barnet) and Fortune Green (Camden). Consequently it is a challenge to develop a coherent approach for Cricklewood as a neighbourhood or town and, as a result, the area requires attention to make it an attractive place for all.

The Cricklewood Town Team was set up by the Cricklewood Improvement Programme – CIP to take forward the work that has been done over the past 4 years to continue to make Cricklewood a place where people want to live, work or visit.  CIP was created by Cricklewood Homeless Concern in partnership with a group of Cricklewood residents towards the end of 2010. A steering group was formed and focused on creating a climate for change that encourages local people in Cricklewood to take charge of and lead on the development of Cricklewood. 

Developing a coherent approach for Cricklewood is the challenge because it’s at the junction of three London boroughs; particularly the three wards - Mapesbury (Brent), Childs Hill (Barnet) and Fortune Green (Camden).  The Town Team is leading on the future role for Cricklewood in conjunction with resident associations, community groups, local businesses, faith groups, community safety agencies, statutory partners such as the police and Barnet, Brent and Camden councils as well as the voluntary sector. In response to surveys of residents, businesses and traders on and around the Broadway, our focus is on creating a thriving local economy, increased visitor footfall, a greener cleaner environment, a safe place for all of us and a community where all voices are heard and valued.

Cricklewood Town Team officers were elected at the Steering Group meeting in May 2016.
