In January 2012, Barnet Council was awarded a grant of £1,676,625 from the Mayor’s Outer London Fund (OLF), a package
of investment designed to support the good work of the boroughs and their partners to nurture sustainable growth and
improve the vitality of high streets across London. This investment will support Cricklewood in becoming a more cohesive,
accessible and thriving local town centre. Match funding from Barnet Council and Brent Council of £591,750 brings the
total project funding to £2,268,375 of which £1,089,463 is allocated to improving the public realm in the local area.
Cricklewood sits at the intersection of three local authorities: LB Barnet, LB Brent and LB Camden. The town centre has
suffered from a history of policy and physical interventions that lack coordination and a sense of priority. With the funding
we aim to deliver a series of public realm improvement initiatives to bring a more cohesive look and feel to the high street,
improving the pedestrian experience and helping to enhance and enrich the existing qualities of the area.
We have been looking at opportunities throughout the local area, and with your support, we want to use the funding to
make changes improving and creating public pedestrian spaces. This will include new trees and greenery and the removal
of excessive street clutter, making the streets clearer and tidier, and to make moving around Cricklewood much easier and
more pleasant.
The aspiration is that these physical improvements will help Cricklewood to become a more vibrant local shopping area,
supporting local businesses, and helping the town centre become a more attractive and inviting place to be.
We would like to share our design proposals with you at the Crown Moran Hotel, 142-152 Cricklewood Broadway, London
NW2 3ED on Thursday 5th September and at the Silk Road Festival on Saturday 7th September . The project team will be
on hand to discuss the proposals during these days or by appointment.
There will also be an opportunity to comment on the plans and submit further ideas. The closing date for comments is
Friday 20th September 2013.
The design proposals can also be found at www.cricklewood.net from Wednesday 4th September 2013 until the
consultation closes.
Information and the opportunity to comment will also be provided at engage.barnet.gov.uk.
