Barnet has an exciting future according to the local council, due to a four year regeneration plan. The Barnet Plan stretches from 2021 to 2025 and will see a number of positive changes for the area. Priorities include safety, cleanliness, health and sustainability, along with the creation of new homes, infrastructure and jobs.
500 Residents were consulted via telephone, and were asked about the various effects of Covid 19 on local communities. Barnet has many strengths such as excellent schools, unique green spaces and vibrant town centres. It also offers a particularly diverse quality, adding to it being a desirable place to live, study and work.
Cllr Dan Thomas, Leader of Barnet Council said: “Our ambitious Barnet Plan sets out how we will continue to foster a healthy, thriving, family friendly environment for all of our diverse communities. We will keep Barnet green, our streets clean, and every person in the borough feeling safe and secure.
“Alongside large projects, such as installing high-speed broadband connection for all residents and businesses, we are investing £6m in road resurfacing and pavement repairs. Building a new town in Brent Cross, we will increase our investment in our parks and open spaces, street cleansing and tackling anti-social behaviour. “The COVID-19 pandemic continues to challenge every resident and business in Barnet and has changed the way that people interact with the council. I’m immensely proud of the way people across our community have rallied together in these circumstances. We already have a Barnet to be proud of; in this plan, we will create a borough ready for the future by playing to our strengths.”
Lessons learned from the pandemic play a large role in plans for the future, as people have realised the importance of working with local organisations. They also highlight the effectiveness of responding to and dealing with new challenges. The plan identifies key outcomes and methods the council will use to achieve them. Those surveyed included local residents, the voluntary and community sector, partner organisations, businesses and Barnet’s Youth Assembly.
