Our Locality Strategy
A Locality Strategy has been developed to ensure our staff are based in the most appropriate locations across the borough to allow them to work securely, safely and effectively, close to the residents they serve. This strategy has been developed in conjunction with the Office Accommodation Review Full Business Case to enable officers and members to decide where staff should be located, including within the proposed new offices in Colindale.
The Locality Strategy demonstrates that the most suitable option is for the new Colindale offices to be the single, principal base for officers, with the provision of touchdown spaces across the borough which frontline staff can use, and a new Family Friendly hub in the east. This will include both an office base for our staff who work with children and families, and also suitable facilities for meeting with children and families. The touchdown spaces are proposed to be within new Business Hubs in four libraries (North Finchley and Golders Green, East Finchley and Chipping Barnet), Hendon Town Hall and the Colindale Independent Living Centre (ILC).
