Consultation over Cricklewood town centre's £1.6million revamp
People living and working in Barnet can have their say on how £1.6million is spent on rejuvenating Cricklewood town centre.
The grant has been allocated from the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund and will be used to plant new trees and instal street furniture in the area as well as carry out repairs to roads, paving and footpaths.
The plans can be viewed at the Crown Moran Hotel in Cricklewood Broadway from 12pm to 8pm on Thursday, September 5 and from 12pm to 6pm on Saturday, September 7 at the Silk Road Festival.
People will also have a chance to share their thoughts on plans to transform Cricklewood Playground. The aim is to provide better connections to the town centre as well as new trees, a play area and a multi-use games area and communal garden.
Plans for the playground will be shown at an activity day at Cricklewood Playground on Saturday September 21 from 10am to 1pm.

"This is an opportunity to bring together residents, business owners and all three local authorities with responsibility for the area to start on the road to transforming the town centre into a vibrant place for all. I look forward to hearing residents views on these plans.”
