Public consultation about to begin at Brent Cross London

Brent Cross Shopping Centre, London’s first and most iconic retail destination is to undergo a £1.4bn redevelopment as its owners Hammerson and Standard Life Investments begin a major public consultation and exhibition (3rd of November) to ensure it meets the needs of its shoppers for the future.  

As the UK’s first out of town shopping centre it revolutionised retail when it opened 40 years ago, the proposed plans to transform the centre form the main element of Brent Cross London, ahead of submitting a detailed planning application. The scheme is part of a larger £4.5bn regeneration plan for Brent Cross and Cricklewood, for which Hammerson and Standard Life Investments already has outline planning consent, granted in 2010.

The scheme is due to be submitted to the planning department at Barnet Council in spring 2017.

The plans will renew and revitalise this significant area of North London into a new urban quarter. The main elements of Brent Cross London which will be the focus of the public consultation and the detailed planning application include: 

* Over 200 retail brands, 40 new restaurants, a cinema complex and hotel accommodation
* A town square that will become a hub for leisure and entertainment activities
* An enlarged and relocated bus station
* New homes
* Improved public spaces, including a new Riverside Park with a new pedestrian route to a living bridge that creates a connection to the wider regeneration taking place to the south of Brent Cross London.

Whilst doubling the size of the existing shopping centre, John Lewis and Fenwick will be retained and a new Marks & Spencer anchor store will be delivered. All three were part of the original Brent Cross when it opened in 1976.

The architects working on the scheme include Callison RTKL and Chapman Taylor.
