This section presents Brent Cross South’s key planning submissions and proposals to date. It provides direct access to the main planning documents and links to all planning application information publicly available via Barnet Council’s planning portal.

In 2010, the comprehensive redevelopment of the Brent Cross Cricklewood (BXC) regeneration area, of which Brent Cross South (BXS) is a part, was initially granted outline planning permission under planning permission reference C/17559/08.

On 23 July 2014, this permission was amended under planning permission reference F/04687/13, the ‘Section 73’ Permission, to separate the original BXC site along the North Circular Road, into two areas, Brent Cross London (BXL) to the north of the North Circular Road and Brent Cross South (BXS) to the south. The original BXC land is also bound by the terms of a related Section 106 Agreement dated 22 July 2014.

Outline planning permission

An application for outline planning permission allows for a decision on the general principles of how a site can be developed. Outline planning permission is granted subject to conditions requiring the subsequent approval of one or more ‘reserved matters’.

Reserved matters applications

A Reserved Matters Application (RMA) follows an outline planning permission. An RMA deals with some or all of the outstanding details of the outline application proposals including detailed design, appearance, means of access, landscaping, layout and scale. The details of an RMA must accord with the outline approval including any conditions attached to the permission.

Planning conditions

Planning permission may be granted, subject to conditions, for example, restricting what activities can take place on-premises, or requiring detailed approval to be acquired for specific aspects of the development, such as the types of materials to be used, before full consent is granted. The planning authority must give reasons for the conditions.
