About the overall project

Throughout the development project we will seek community input to influence the name of the place, as well as details on the types of new homes, offices and public spaces which are planned. We believe that Brent Cross South should be a place that celebrates past, present and future.

The project, which was granted Outline Planning Permission in 2010, will deliver:

  • 6,700 new homes with a mix of sale, rental and affordable
  • Up to 4 million square feet of new office space providing for over 25,000 jobs
  • A new high street, with local shops and restaurants
  • Improved transport connections, with an additional Thameslink station serving the area
  • Better walking and cycle routes
  • New bridges over the North Circular, Midland Main Line and Hendon Way
  • New squares and parks with inspiring places for children to play
  • New and improved community facilities.

This is a description of the overall project which is divided between three development partners. The responsibility of each development partner is described on the next page.

Connected to the Brent Cross shopping centre by a new bridge over the North Circular, the new town centre will be a welcoming place which focuses on local needs and provides amenities for a diverse community.

A new high street will provide a mix of shops and restaurants set within a series of attractive public spaces. It will be a place where people can enjoy spending time both during the week and at the weekend.

A cluster of new office buildings around the new Thameslink Station and small business spaces adjacent to the new high street will also make Brent Cross South a place where people can start a business.

Better walking and cycling routes will provide good connections to new parks and improved green spaces and there will be inspiring places for children to play outdoors.

With the recent approval of the Joint Venture between Barnet Council and Argent Related by Barnet Council’s Assets, Regeneration and Growth Committee, the, design and eventual construction planned for this part of London can now go ahead.

Although the Outline Planning Permission provides a clear set of guidelines for the Brent Cross South development, it is also the starting point for more detailed design work. Argent Related fully anticipates that there may be further enhancements to the approved masterplan as we proceed. Our ambition is to work alongside the local community with the aim of achieving the best possible outcome.

It is expected that the first works will start in 2018.
