Future Edgware project launches!

20th June 2022

Very soon all eyes will be on Edgware, "Barnet’s only major town centre", as regeneration is set to begin. Most residents agree the town centre is in desperate need of renewal, with Barnet and Harrow Councils SPD objectives receiving 87% support online. However, when it comes to development, Barnet Council is not viewed favourably. Over the past decade applications have eased in with suburbs transformed by overdevelopment and high rise buildings. These were residents main concerns in response to the SPD, and already Edgware has seen a 17-storey tower block approved 'under the radar'. The town centre has been labelled with potential for buildings higher than 8 storeys, and even over 14 storeys; 5,000 new homes could be coming.

Ahead of the regeneration we want to raise awareness of the plans to as many local residents as possible. Moreover, we want to collect as many resident views as we can to maximize community response to any proposals. Too often public opinion has come second to housing targets and development deals - but Edgware deserves so much better.

Join us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for regular updates and opportunities to speak up. But first - Future Edgware begins here. Have a look at the proposals, share your comments and stay connected as the project is about to begin.
