We will be holding public exhibitions over the 12th, 13th and 15th of July to present the proposed designs of the first phase of Brent Cross South, known as Phase 1BS in the Outline Planning Permission. This will include the first buildings to be delivered at Brent Cross South. The aspirations for Phase 1BS were set out in our previous newsletter in April this year which can be downloaded from the BXS dialogue page here: brentcrosssouth.co.uk/dialogue/
Your feedback is important before the plans are submitted for detailed planning permission (Reserved Matters) later this year. The team will also introduce elements of the emerging new town centre, such as the new street networks and public spaces.
We are also seeking feedback on the proposal for an exciting new temporary open space at the heart of the scheme for events and activities.
Please come along to one of the exhibition dates to find out more about 1BS and share your thoughts on elements of it with the team.
12th July, 5pm – 9pm at Whitefield School
13th July, 12pm – 4pm, Claremont Free Church
15th July, 10am – 4pm, Clayton Crown Hotel

In preparing to make a start on site with the first phase, the BXS Partnership is seeking to revise the sequencing (or ‘phasing’) of delivery originally envisaged in the approved Outline Planning Permission 2014. The reason for this proposed change now is to respond to real constraints and conditions on the ground in setting out the foundation for this new neighbourhood. The proposed re-phasing will result in a better match to the delivery sequence of the Shopping Centre and new Thameslink Station and the supporting infrastructure.
The BXS Partnership has submitted a ‘re-phasing application’ to Barnet Council to confirm what will be included in the first part of the Brent Cross South development. All documents relating to the submission are publicly available via Barnet Council’s website through this link and we you can also view them here on the Brent Cross South website.
This month, Hammerson and Standard Life Investments will submit a number of planning applications to Barnet Council to enable the transfer of six essential pieces of infrastructure from the ‘Brent Cross London’ part of the development to ‘Brent Cross South’, which is being delivered by a Joint Venture between Argent Related and Barnet Council.
The infrastructure items, which are within the 192 acre ‘Brent Cross South’ site and have detailed planning consent, are as follows:
- High Street South (East) – a short stretch of the High Street between the Tempelhof Link Road and Market Square;
- Claremont Avenue;
- Orchard Lane; and
- Claremont Road/Claremont Avenue Junction North.
- Claremont Park; and
- Clitterhouse Playing Fields (Part 1).
The works listed above are integral to the ‘Brent Cross South’ development and transferring delivery to the Argent Related/Barnet Council partnership means that it will be coordinated to best fit the phasing and delivery of the ‘Brent Cross South’ masterplan.
The transfer will ensure that the enhancements to Claremont Park and Clitterhouse Playing Fields are delivered sequentially, to avoid closure of both parks at the same time. Also, a temporary open space will be delivered very early in the ‘Brent Cross South’ development programme to ensure that residents have continued access to as much open space as possible throughout construction works.

You may have recently heard about consultation events being held for the next phase of the Brent Cross Shopping Centre redevelopment.
These events, taking place in November, are being held by Hammerson and Standard Life Investments (the joint owners of Brent Cross Shopping Centre), who will be consulting local people about their plans to modernise and redevelop the 40-year-old Brent Cross into a world-class shopping and leisure destination.
The redevelopment of the shopping centre is an important part of the wider regeneration known as Brent Cross Cricklewood, of which the Brent Cross South development forms a part.
Click here to see the map of responsibilities.
The Hammerson and Standard Life Investments consultation events are being run independently from the BXS Positive Dialogue process. However, the BXS team will be on hand at the Brent Cross Shopping Centre consultation events in order to answer any questions about Brent Cross South.
Further information relating to the Brent Cross Shopping Centre consultation is available here.
We are also planning a further round of meetings with the Community Liaison Groups in November to discuss the emerging plans for the first phase of the Brent Cross South project. More details to follow…
Welcome to the new website for Brent Cross South. The focus right now is on the community engagement process being led by Soundings. We have been meeting with a range of local groups and organisations to discuss the project and we’ll also be holding some events in the local area in the coming months. Please let us know if you would like to be involved or would like us to keep you directly updated.
