Plans are in the pipeline for a two-storey animal hospital to be built on a car park in Barnet.

The current PDSA Pet Hospital in Hendon needs relocating as part of the redevelopment of Hendon Hub – with Osidge Lane earmarked as a potential alternative.

The proposed two-storey building would occupy approximately half the site, and would re-provide 20 parking spaces to be shared between the hospital and general public.

A leaflet detailing the project confirmed the nearby mature trees would be retained, and the nearby scout hut and church would also be unaffected.

Hendon Hub wrote: "We would like to work with local residents on any mitigation measures that can be put in place to cater for the reasonable parking requirements of the community due to the removal of some of the existing parking spaces."

It is currently unclear exactly how many parking spaces would be lost.

A consultation on the proposals has been extended to May 21 - but due to ongoing restrictions virtual presentations will be held online over the coming weeks.

"The project team is keen to hear your views and you will have the opportunity to ask questions during the virtual presentation or by contacting them during the consultation period," the leaflet reads.

The next consultation event on the main Hendon Hub proposals is today (Thursday, March 18), between 6pm and 7.30pm, with more details available on the project website:

There will then be four virtual presentations, one of which is for Osidge Lane, which will be on Tuesday, May 11.

People can find out more information and provide feedback on the Hendon Hub website, or by emailing

The planning application will be submitted later this year.
