History of the scheme

The Brent Cross Regeneration scheme is made up of three interrelated projects: 1. the redevelopment of Brent Cross shopping centre and delivery of related critical infrastructure; 2. Brent Cross South, a new mixed-use town centre, and 3. the additional Brent Cross Thameslink station.

The whole masterplan area covers around 370 acres (151 hectares) across both sides of the North Circular Road (A406) at its intersection with the M1; the north and south areas will be linked by a new pedestrian bridge running across the North Circular.

Originally, Outline Planning Permission was granted to Hammerson and Standard Life Investments (HSL) in 2010 for the entire masterplan area.

In 2014 a revised (Section73) planning permission was approved which split the site along the North Circular so that a third development partner might take the lead in delivering the southern portion of the site. In 2015, Barnet Council selected Argent Related as its preferred development partner for Brent Cross South project.

The Outline Planning Permission sets out guidelines for the overall scale and quality of the Brent Cross South development. Although the Outline Permission provides a clear set of guidelines for the Brent Cross South project, it is also the starting point for more detailed design work, which is currently underway and will have input from the community.
