The wider masterplan

In 2010, outline planning permission was secured for a £4 billion masterplan of Brent Cross Cricklewood to create a new town centre, including 841,615 sq ft of retail space, 7,500 homes, 27,000 jobs, three re-built schools and new parks and community facilities. An additional train station on the Thameslink line, and major road and public transport improvements, are also major features of the plans.
