The plans for the £4.5bn regeneration of Cricklewood town centre in north London have been submitted to Barnet Council today.

The plans for a new Town Centre based around Cricklewood and Brent Cross will include 7,500 homes, three schools, health facilities, high quality parks and open spaces.

The proposals from development partners, Brookfield Europe - formerly Multiplex - Hammerson and Standard Life Investments, include links between the rail stations, the newly created high street, to Brent Cross shopping centre and through to Brent Cross tube.

The 373 acre regeneration area is bordered by Brent Cross Shopping Centre in the north, the A41 Hendon Way in the east, Cricklewood Lane in the south and the A5 Edgware Road in the West.

The proposals will go on exhibition next month and Barnet Council will be seeking the views of residents within and bordering on the regeneration area.
