What is happening in Burnt Oak and Colindale?

Burnt Oak and ColindaleThe Burnt Oak and Colindale Growth Area, on the boundary between Brent and Barnet, forms part of the Burnt Oak/Colindale Opportunity Area in the London Plan.

Burnt Oak and Colindale is identified as a suitable location for the construction of new homes to accommodate population growth and demand for housing. The GLA believes regeneration is an opportunity to provide a major boost to business and employment in the local area.

The majority of new development, 10,000 of the 12,500 new homes, will be built in Barnet and policy and guidance on this is set out in Barnet's Colindale Area Action Plan (AAP), adopted in March 2010.
