We would like to hear your views on our Draft Growth Strategy
The strategy sets out our role and priorities for regeneration, development and business, employment and skills activity across the borough from 2019 to 2030.
By 2030, Barnet’s population will have grown to almost 450,000 people, including a disproportionate increase in the older population. We also expect more people will be working flexibly, including from home; and many more will live in town centres with easier access to shops, services, and leisure facilities. We want to ensure Barnet can accommodate this growth and the shifts in working patterns, whilst continuing to offer top-class education, great open spaces and a good quality of life.
The Growth Strategy sets a direction for change to offer greater local opportunities, create better places, encourage more active lifestyles and increase the health and well-being of Barnet’s residents; whilst recognising that growth must be delivered through a sustainable approach to development. The strategy also sets out the council’s role and how we will respond to these current and emerging challenges, as well as laying down a plan for how we can best focus our resources to help deliver the priorities laid out in the strategy.
The consultation is seeking your views on a range of themes. For more information on how to give your views please visit Engage Barnet.
