Brent Cross Town has launched a public consultation to help shape the rejuvenation of a 44-acre open green space.
Clitterhouse Playing Fields is “key” to Argent Related and Barnet Council’ s vision for the new town centre and will offer new places to relax and enjoy green spaces.
They will also be a place where anyone can participate in active play and sport, or enjoy as a spectator.
Currently, the lack of amenities and facilities mean they are currently limited to a handful of uses.
Local residents and members of the community are being invited to share their thoughts and give feedback on the Clitterhouse Playing Fields.
This insight will help to shape the design that is being developed within the existing outline planning permission, which has been granted to include traditional sport and play facilities and a pavilion.
This first round of consultation aims to ensure residents have the opportunity to guide the rejuvenation and improvement of the playing fields so that they are more accessible, inclusive and welcoming.
The consultation opened on October 4, and will close on Sunday, October 31.
Councillor Daniel Thomas, Leader Barnet Council, said: “Clitterhouse Playing Fields are at the heart of the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme. They will play a key role in ensuring Barnet’s new park town enhances the health and wellbeing of those that live there or visit from across the borough.
“The views of the community are essential in informing the way the Clitterhouse Playing Fields are transformed in the future and I encourage everyone to have their say and get involved in the plans as they are developed.”
Morwenna Hall, Partner of Argent Related, added: “Clitterhouse Playing Fields are a unique open green space that are an important part of the local area for many people.
“The scale of the playing fields, together with the limited facilities they offer at present, gives us an opportunity to enhance what is on offer and to support both physical and mental wellbeing in the community. That’s why we are asking the local community to share their invaluable insight, knowledge and ideas with us to help us shape our proposals.”
