Brent Cross West
As a new Thameslink Station, Brent Cross West will connect people to Central London in under 15 minutes with up to eight trains per hour. It is expected that 2 million people will use the station in the first year. The Station will be near the heart of the new Brent Cross South development and include a vibrant new Station Quarter.
Waste Transfer Station
A new state-of-the-art waste transfer facility will serve Barnet and Camden, handling up to 195,000 tonnes of black bag, mixed recycling and other waste annually. Impact on nearby residents will be minimised with a state of the art odour control system, whilst a brown roof and external ‘green screening’ will help improve bio-diversity in the area.
The Brent/Cricklewood sidings have been a vital part of the railway network for around 150 years for servicing, and for drivers to join and leave their trains. The current railway sidings are being moved further south to create the space for the new station. New office accommodation has been built for staff and train drivers to use with a new fuelling station for the trains.
Rail Freight Facility
A Rail Freight Facility is part of the approved masterplan for Brent Cross Cricklewood, replacing an existing strategic freight facility which has to be relocated to make way for the wider redevelopment. This facility will be used for the delivery, temporary storage and collection of aggregate materials used in construction (e.g. gravel, crushed stone and sand for making concrete). It is being built by DB Cargo.
The Council has received a planning application for the development of a new concrete batching plant which is proposed to be located on Plot 3 of the existing Rail Freight Facility operated by DB Cargo (UK) Ltd. Details of the planning application can be viewed on the Council’s planning portal by searching reference number: 20/4817/FUL. The Applicant (Capital Concrete Ltd) has also set up the following website where further details of the proposal are provided, including contact details should you have any questions you wish to ask Capital Concrete
Brent Cross South
The new town centre and neighbourhood at the heart of the development will be served by the new Brent Cross West Station. With its vibrant high street, improved schools and community facilities, as well as new squares and open spaces, Brent Cross South will also bring 6,700 new homes which will be a mix of affordable homes, rentals and private sales and commercial offices.
Brent Cross London
Brent Cross revolutionised shopping when it opened 40 years ago and now its owners, Hammerson and Aberdeen Standard Investments, are reviewing plans to expand the existing shopping centre and associated infrastructure.
The northern L-shaped building will provide 120 replacement homes for residents of the Whitefield Estate as well as welcoming additional residents. The homes will be built around a new pocket park.
L&Q has been appointed to build and manage 47 replacement homes for residents of the Whitefield Estate.
