We have also included in the plans:
- Retail and restaurant space on a new plaza on Colindale Avenue to help bring the area to life, create a night-time economy and make Colindale a place where people can relax and enjoy themselves;
- Space for a potential Health Centre facility to be located on site;
- A quality supermarket, big enough for the weekly shop. We are currently in talks with a number of major retailers who are interested in opening a store here;
- Space for other community facilities in the new plaza depending on need and demand;
The development of the site will also create up to 3,600 full time construction related jobs, about 500 permanent jobs associated with the commercial uses proposed on site and support local apprenticeships. Redrow is working with Barnet Council to ensure that local people benefit from training opportunities on site. There may also be scope for Redrow to work in partnership with Barnet College’s new construction training facility.
