Council launches local Barnet consultation UK News

The people of Barnet can have a say in a plan designed to shape the development of the borough.

Barnet’s council has launched a consultation on the latest version of its new draft local plan, which will form the basis on which councilors will decide on planning applications.

It comes as the borough faces a goal of providing more than 35,000 homes between 2021 and 2036, the period covered by the plan.

The council also aims to deliver up to 67,000 m² of new downtown office space, a metropolitan downtown at Brent Cross, a regional park and three sports and recreation hubs over the 15 year period.

The local bylaw 19 plan – the version council is seeking to adopt – includes 52 policies and identifies 66 sites that could be used to provide housing.

A public consultation on the document was launched on Monday and will continue until Thursday, August 19.

Following the consultation, the document and all written comments will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for public review, which is expected to take place in the spring of next year. The plan is expected to be adopted by the council at the end of 2022.

More information on the document and details on how to provide feedback can be found here:
