Help us design our 44-acre park
October 5, 2021
Brent Cross Town will be 180 acres of park town in the heart of north London, and we want your help to shape our green vision.
A public consultation has been launched today on Clitterhouse Playing Fields, a 44-acre open green space that is a key part of the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme. Residents and other members of the community are being invited to give their thoughts on how we can create something that works for people of all ages and backgrounds.
Our goal is to create one of north London’s most significant public parks, where people can relax and enjoy green spaces, grab a coffee, and meet with friends. It will be a place where anyone, regardless of age, gender or ability can participate in active play and sport, or enjoy as a spectator. The ambition is to offer a wide variety of new sports and play facilities that are accessible to all, as well as clear and safe routes throughout the fields.
The playing fields will cover an area equivalent of 22 football pitches, and the existing planning permission which has been granted includes a range of traditional sport and play facilities plus a pavilion.
Councillor Daniel Thomas, Leader of Barnet Council, said: “Clitterhouse Playing Fields are at the heart of the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme. They will play a key role in ensuring Barnet’s new park town enhances the health and wellbeing of those that live there or visit from across the borough.
“The views of the community are essential in informing the way the Clitterhouse Playing Fields are transformed in the future and I encourage everyone to have their say and get involved in the plans as they are developed.”
Morwenna Hall, Partner of developer Argent Related, added: “Clitterhouse Playing Fields are a unique open green space that are an important part of the local area for many people.
“The scale of the playing fields, together with the limited facilities they offer at present, gives us an opportunity to enhance what is on offer and to support both physical and mental wellbeing in the community. That’s why we are asking the local community to share their invaluable insight, knowledge and ideas with us to help us shape our proposals.”
The Clitterhouse Playing Fields consultation will run until Sunday 31 October, and is available to view at bxt.uk/cpfconsult.
