Edgware Growth Area SPD Consultation

Barnet and Harrow Councils are jointly preparing the Edgware Growth Area Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). It is to provide guidance on how Edgware Town Centre can successfully undergo renewal and serve as a destination for local residents and businesses.

Edgware Town Centre has a diverse character, vibrant community and excellent shopping opportunities. The planning framework will support redevelopment of key sites to:

  • reflect Edgware’s status as a major town centre
  • reinforce the role of the high street
  • provide new public spaces
  • make the street environment more attractive

The environment for pedestrians and cyclists will be improved, providing better options for more sustainable transport and safe and active movement. The town centre will also provide opportunities for new high-quality homes, including affordable housing.

The emerging SPD, when adopted, will provide a material consideration for the determination of future planning applications within the SPD boundary.

Barnet and Harrow Councils welcome your input on a document which will have an impact on the people who live, work, operate a business or visit Edgware.
