Barnet Council has approved a supplementary planning document to guide development in North Finchley Town Centre and High Street.
The North Finchley Town Centre Framework Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), which helps to define the approach for any future development within North Finchley, was unanimously agreed by Councillors.
The approval of the SPD will mean that the planning proposals to deliver the major improvements to revitalise North Finchley Town Centre can progress. While retail and business space remains important, the council say planned investment in residential-led mixed-use developments will prove vital in helping to fund environmental and transport improvements, making North Finchley a much more attractive place.
in 2017, Barnet Council consulted on the draft Town Centre Framework.
Councillor Dan Thomas, Chairman of the Assets, Regeneration and Growth Committee, said: “We are really pleased that the committee has given its full support and we are now keen to get started with this development.
“With this planned investment, we have real aspirations to develop North Finchley into a destination that people are proud to live, work, shop and socialise in.”
