Setting up a Town Team

There are currently Town Teams (or similar groups) in Chipping Barnet, Cricklewood, East Finchley, Edgware, Mill Hill and Whetstone and we are working with businesses, residents and community groups to set up Town Teams in other areas.

What a Town Team is

We want to work with communities and businesses to improve Barnet’s high streets and create thriving town centres.

A Town Team is an independent group of local residents, businesses and community representatives who come together to make their area a better place to live and work.

Town Team members come from diverse sectors and backgrounds and are all volunteers. They have the opportunity to become ‘local experts’ in their area and to take a lead on the development of projects that can make positive long-term changes.

How Town Teams help improve the local area

Barnet’s Town Teams are involved in a range of projects from organising small and large community events to being actively involved in reshaping the borough’s high streets and town centres. 

What we can offer:

  • support and guidance for local groups of residents, businesses and community groups who want to create a Town Team
  • invitations for established Town Teams to network with other Town Teams in and outside Barnet, to promote shared learning and other opportunities
  • council attendance at Town Team meetings at least once per year and will respond to queries where a specific issue or opportunity arises
  • informing Town Teams of funding opportunities from external organisations, such as the Greater London Authority, and help to prepare applications

Join a High Street Network event run by the London Mayor’s Office
