Planning permission to deliver a new neighbourhood park has been approved for Brent Cross South. Plans for Claremont Park include a range of features such as: new play areas, park furniture, a pond, fencing and shared pedestrian and cycling routes. Some key design elements include:
- Space and equipment for exercise, play and leisure which caters for both young and old
- A wide range of benches and picnic tables accessible for all
- A fun and engaging trail which guides people on an exploration of the park
- A pond designed with a decked platform to create an area for people to rest
Improving the play offer and other park facilities will ensure that the park attracts a wide range of users and becomes a dynamic and active community space for the existing and growing communities around the park.

Reserved Matters planning approval has been granted for Plot 13 and Phase 1 South associated highways and public realm. Plot 13 will front onto Claremont Park and the new High Street, and is proposed to include privately rented and sale units, a community centre, a neighbourhood cinema and retail space.
Planning approval for the Temporary Open Space has now been granted.
The Temporary Open Space will provide a replacement park during the construction of Claremont Park and the refurbishment of Clitterhouse Playing Fields (Part 1). The Temporary Open Space will be on the site of Plot 11 and will open in 2020. Focused around play and recreation, the space will be used to pilot new design ideas for the wider area.
More information on the Temporary Open Space, including designs, facilities and more can be found here.
