To help make Barnet even better for those who live, work and study here.
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.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The area is shabby and uninviting, opposite Mill Hill East Church. This project, involving the local community, will also serve to enhance the gateway to the nearby housing estates to the benefit of all. We believe that more people will then walk/cycle to these shops rather than travel by car to shop for everyday items further afield.
Steps to get it done:
A Sponsorship Scheme has been designed for local businesses who want to help us deliver this regeneration scheme, to be involved in the launch programme and have a “footprint” at the site to signpost local people to their products and services in the future. We are looking for organisations who will complement the offerings of the local shops at the site, and who will welcome the inevitable introduction to new business opportunities as a consequence of having their name involved in this great Community project.
Bronze: From £100-£499
Silver: From £500 - £999
Gold: From £1000 - £1999
Platinum: (primarily for the local Shop owners) Over £2000
