Brent Cross £4Bn redevelopment gets go ahead

The giant £4Bn Brent Cross redevelopment has taken a major step forward with the granting of outline planning permission for a revised scheme by the London Borough of Barnet Council to joint developers Hammerson and Standard Life Investments.

 

Detailed design of the scheme which will create thousands of engineering jobs will get under way immediately. The scheme represents a comprehensive regeneration of the Brent Cross Cricklewood area of north west London, the biggest ever in the area.

 

The Masterplan for the development was originally granted planning approval in 2010 but revised plans submitted in October last year have added a new network of streets and public spaces that will be fully or partially covered around the existing shopping area, and a pedestrian and cycle bridge over the North Circular Road. Some 27,000 operational and construction jobs will be created as the developers also deliver three schools, health facilities, a new train station, a new bus station, six bridges and new public open spaces.

 

The development will be the biggest in the history of this part of London and includes a new town centre with 7,500 new homes along with extensive retail, dining, leisure and community facilities. The developers are bringing forward some related transport improvements promised as part of their Section 73 planning application.

 

The developers will provide a total of £500 million investment in transport, and some £190 million on environmental measures, £200 for road improvements including £50 million to improve Staples Corner, around £110 million on the new community infrastructure like schools and health facilities, and £112 million on cleaning up the land and disposing of waste.

 

The existing Hendon Waste Transfer Station will be replaced with a state of the art Waste Handling and Recycling Facility which will create a Refuse Derived Fuel to be used in a Combined heat and Power Plant.

 

Construction is intended to start next year.
