We want to replace the shop fronts, providing new signs, awnings and shutters at a consistent height. The paving needs to be cleaned, taken up and reset level in situ. The bollards that are all leaning over should be replaced with some seating and a few trees to enhance the area to encourage more shoppers. It is a precinct with a Newsagent, Sub-Post Office Chemist, Dry-Cleaners, a Convenience Store and possibly the best Fish & Chip shop in North West London, but many local residents would not currently stop there. The area to the left is the subject of a major development of an assisted care home and we are enthusiastic that when built to plans it will enhance the area. 6 new flats are being built to the right hand side of this precinct. The shops will then look even more shabby by contrast with these new developments either side. The changes proposed here will improve the attractiveness of this local shopping amenity for all residents in the immediate vicinity.
Ten Grand Arcade is a thriving art gallery, business start-up hub and space for community use which has been set up and managed by the North Finchley Town Team and has been fully functioning since June 2014.
