Residents help shape the future of Barnet’s Parks

Residents at Barratt London’s Edgware Green development are being given the opportunity to have their say on Barnet’s parks and open spaces

Living at Barratt London’s Edgware Green development means residents have over 200 parks and open spaces to enjoy in the Borough of Barnet – that include a range of activities from outdoor gyms to playing football and tennis. Not only is the development set along a tree-lined boulevard with a wealth of green spaces linking the homes, but residents can also enjoy Stanmore Country Park just a 16 minute walk away, where they can take in over 75 acres of woodland and grassland. Alternatively, Aldenham Country Park is only a seven minute drive from the development, where residents can explore 100 acres of beautiful parkland, take a relaxing walk around a 60-acre lake or even learn to sail.

Homeowners at Edgware Green are now being given then the chance to have their say about the local open spaces through a questionnaire from Barnet Council. Chairman of the Environment Committee, Councillor Dean Cohen, said: “Although we are in the very early stages of putting together a strategy for our parks, it is important that we have a clear understanding of what residents want from our green-spaces.” Barnet Council wants to hear about the different ways in which local residents use the parks in Barnet, which will help shape how the council maintains its green spaces for years to come.

Cohen goes on to explain the reason behind opening up the strategy to the public: “One thing is very certain, Barnet residents love their parks and open spaces. The council is working extremely hard to make sure that they remain some of the best in London."

Edgware Green is a regeneration scheme built across 30 acres, creating a beautiful collection of 937 homes ranging from one, two and three-bedroom apartments to three and four-bedroom houses. Along with plenty of Barnet’s parks and open spaces to enjoy, all homes at Edgware Green feature their own outdoor space. All apartments come with a balcony or terrace, while houses feature a terrace, patio or garden, with many homes offering open views across the Green Belt.
