Barnet Council is consulting on its draft Growth Strategy, which sets out the council’s priorities for regeneration, development and business, employment and skills activity across the borough from 2019 to 2030.
The Growth Strategy responds to expected economic, social and environmental trends to 2030, including a significantly growing and aging local population, changes in the employment market and how we work, how we use our high streets, as well as environmental concerns. The council aims to ensure Barnet continues to be a pleasant and well-maintained place to live, work and visit, so the Growth Strategy sets a direction for change by addressing requirements to increase the housing supply, supporting places across the borough most in need of investment, and maximising the benefits of growth for residents to ensure.
A summary consultation document and the full strategy are available to review here.
The consultation is seeking views on a range of themes included in the strategy, such as the approach to growth across five themes, the area based approach to growth, and infrastructure priorities across the borough.
