Hendon Hub Consultation Website

Barnet Council and Middlesex University have a shared ambition of the Burroughs in Hendon becoming the heart of education in a thriving Barnet.

Led by Barnet Council, this innovative and exciting proposal will integrate new academic and civic spaces along The Burroughs in Hendon and other nearby sites.

Working in partnership with Middlesex University and other key stakeholders, such as the Barnet Library Service, this project will create a place that everyone can be proud of and which will deliver significant new investment into this area. It will dramatically improve the look and feel of The Burroughs, creating a pleasant environment that is accessible and able to be used by everyone in Hendon.

We held our public consultation from Friday 27 February until Monday 7 June 2021. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the draft proposals. The project team is reviewing the comments received and undertaking further design development, ahead of planning applications potentially being submitted later this summer (if the Full Business Case is approved by the Policy and Resources Committee at Barnet Council).

Ground survey work taking place (Update 21st September 2021)

A letter was recently sent to properties in Hendon and The Burroughs notifying local people about planned ground investigation works being carried out by Socotech. This work is now due to finish in early October. We apologies for any inconvenience and aim to continue to carry out these works with minimal disruption caused.

A copy of the letter previously sent to local residents is available here.

Hendon Hub proposals take step forward (Update 28 July 2021)

Proposals for a development project which will deliver new and improved civic and academic spaces around The Burroughs in Hendon have taken a step forward, after a full business case for the scheme was given the go-ahead.

At a meeting of full Council on 27 July, councillors voted to approve the business case for the Hendon Hub, paving the way for the development proposals to progress.

The decision means that planning applications for the scheme, which have been developed in partnership with Middlesex University, can be submitted over the coming weeks.

Residents will then have a further opportunity to provide their feedback as part of the statutory planning consultation process.

This follows on from extensive public consultation carried out earlier this year between March and June 2021 which helped shape the proposals which have been revised and updated following feedback.

Councillor Dan Thomas, Leader of Barnet Council, said: “Approval of the full business case for the Hendon Hub proposals is an extremely important step which means planning applications for the scheme can be submitted in the near future.

“The Hendon Hub plans represent an exciting opportunity to bring much needed investment into the area and deliver improved civic and academic spaces. This would include a brand new state-of-the-art library facility on The Burroughs, along with new student and keyworker accommodation and independent homes for young adults.

“The proposals will also include an improved public realm and green spaces, and community facilities that will benefit everyone who lives and works in Hendon.”
