Kiosk given planning permission at new park
August 9, 2021
A kiosk which will sell snacks and hot and cold drinks at Brent Cross Town’s first permanent park has been granted planning permission.
The single-storey building will have three public toilets, and will be adjacent to the children’s adventure playground on the southern path running through Claremont Park. It will also be close to the junctions with other footpaths, meaning there is easy access to it for all park-users.
The kiosk has been sensitively designed to be set into the slope of the park so that it sits below the height of the garden fences of the houses on Clitterhouse Crescent, whilst new tree and hedge planting along the perimeter of the park will provide visual screening for the houses behind. The kiosk will be clad in timber to integrate it into the woodland park setting.
Claremont Park is being built at Claremont Open Space and will open in spring 2022. It is one of the first steps in bringing to life our vision for a new park town in north London, and will include benches and picnic tables, a pond with a decked platform, extensive trees and other planting, grassed areas for informal play, a grassed amphitheatre for small scale community events, and a playground at its centre.
Once completed, Brent Cross Town will offer more public open space than before the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme began. There will be around 50 acres of parks and playing fields and eight new public squares.
