What is the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration plan?
Brent Cross Cricklewood is a key element of Barnet Council’s regeneration and housing programme over the next 10-20 years. The Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration area covers around 370 acres and will renew and revitalise this significant quarter of North London into a new urban village. The area is bordered by Brent Cross Shopping Centre in the north, the A41/Hendon Way in the east; Cricklewood Lane in the south; and the A5 Edgware Road in the west, and is one of the most significant planned new developments in Europe.
As well as seeing the development of Brent Cross Shopping Centre, the whole regeneration plan is designed to provide around 7,500 new homes over the next 20 years, including affordable homes and replacement homes for the Whitefield Estate, major upgrades to the local transport network (including a new mainline railway station – 15 minutes into central London), improved public spaces and new employment opportunities for local people (around 27,000 jobs).
