Thinking of moving your business to Barnet
Barnet is a great place to locate your business. Here’s why:
Barnet is the largest borough in London by population, with a strong economy based predominantly on significant numbers of small businesses. Barnet has more businesses registered than any other outer-London borough. Only Westminster and Camden have more.
There are a variety of premises for business in the borough, from the borough’s many town centres to purpose-built industrial and business parks and major shopping centres such as Brent Cross. Businesses in the borough are also increasingly being run from home, supported by high quality digital infrastructure.
Barnet is varied geographically, with the east of the borough providing attractive and leafy Edwardian and Victorian suburbs, quality parks and green spaces, and easy access to the green belt and natural beauty of Totteridge. The west of the borough is characterised by high growth, fast change, new investment and development, and a rapidly growing and diverse population as new housing, regeneration and employment opportunities come to fruition.
Barnet acts as a gateway to the capital by road and by rail, with both the M1 and two major rail lines providing easy access to central London and the rest of the UK. Businesses tell us that transport links and proximity to London are the best things about doing business in Barnet.
Development of major regeneration areas at Brent Cross-Cricklewood and Colindale will create thousands of new jobs and homes, as well as offering opportunities to upgrade key infrastructure.
There are excellent training facilities for businesses looking to take on new staff locally, or wishing to improve their own skills in the borough’s further and higher education centres including Barnet and Southgate College, and Middlesex University.
