Welcome

Welcome to our consultation website for the proposed redevelopment of B&Q Cricklewood.

You can find out about the emerging proposals for the site below or from the exhibition boards that were presented at our public consultation earlier in 2020.

Project Update May 2020

Montreaux and their design team began consulting with the London Borough of Barnet, the Greater London Authority and local residents on their design proposals from mid-2019, culminating in a public drop-in consultation in February 2020 that attracted 143 local people over two days.

Thank you to everyone who attended the drop-in consultation and to those we have met with before and after the event. The feedback you have provided has been invaluable to the team.

To recap, Montreaux’s vision for the site is to deliver a vibrant new neighbourhood offering new homes, jobs, public space, play facilities and landscaped public realm, as well as improved pedestrian and cycle connections.

Montreaux are pleased that the feedback received at our consultation events has been supportive of the key community benefits, particularly the new town square.

They were also pleased that people understood the challenge of balancing their ambition to make almost half the site publicly accessible and the height of the proposed buildings, currently ranging from 3 to 25 storeys.

The exhibition boards displayed at the event earlier this year can be viewed and downloaded here.

The Proposed Development

The proposed development will include:

  • Circa 1,100 new market, rental and affordable homes providing a range of housing options, including 35% affordable housing;
  • A significant new town square for Cricklewood immediately next to Cricklewood green, capable of hosting markets, concerts and other community events;
  • Enhancements to Cricklewood Green such as new seating and pathways to connect to the new town square, that will be designed in partnership with the local community;
  • New workspace and a café/restaurant facing onto the new town square bringing more people to the area to help support local shops and businesses;
  • Places for children to play throughout the public realm and a new public play area towards the north of the site;
  • Community space, potentially next to the public play area;
  • New and improved pedestrian and cycle connections through the site;
  • The closure of vehicular access from Cricklewood Lane to help improve congestion locally;
  • A significant reduction in parking on site from what is currently provided to further help reduce congestion in the area;
  • Car clubs, electric charging points and high levels of secure cycle parking for residents and visitors to help promote sustainable modes of transport; and
  • 10% of the new homes to be designed for wheelchair users who will also have priority for a designated parking space. 

Next Steps

Montreaux are still keen to hear from local residents and businesses as they work towards making a planning application for the site that they hope to submit to the London Borough of Barnet in the summer.
