Barnet council are getting new offices covering 90,000 square feet which will reportedly save £1 million per year on running costs. The new offices based on Bristol Avenue, will place the council at the centre of one of it’s flagship regeneration areas. Locals can expect major infrastructure improvements, better transport links, a brand new college campus, replacement library, community and children’s activity centre and community health facilities.
A growth and regeneration programme for Barnet is set to bring in over £11 million in income by 2025, to be used for frontline services. There will also be a one off income of £50 million by the end of the decade to invest on infrastructure. The council has developed a strategy which will ensure that workers are more accessible to the residents they serve, while keeping them safe and effective.
Barnet is determined to become the best place in London for small businesses, and to this end their new building will include a business hub for local start ups, located on the ground floor. Plans include a family friendly hub, with a family services office along with suitable facilities to be used when meeting with children and families.
This is just one of the exciting projects on the cards for Barnet, as there are plans for the construction of housing, new schools, plus leisure and community centres. The various major projects will cost around £150 million, and are a requirement due to Barnet’s large and increasing population.
