A series of public exhibition about updates to the controversial £4billion plans to regenerated Brent Cross and Cricklewood will begin later this month.
The original proposals, which campaigners have been battling against, will see the shopping centre in Hendon double in size and a large scale regeneration of the Cricklewood area.
However Hammerson and Standard Life Investments, the developers of the scheme, have now made three improvements to the plans; a better Brent Cross Shopping Centre, a new pedestrian bridge and faster delivery of some of the major transport improvements.
Once completed the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration scheme will also include 7,500 new homes, 27,000 jobs, three new schools, a new train station, major road improvements, a completely reinvigorated Clitterhouse Playing Fields, new community facilities and much more.
Visitors to the exhibition will also have the chance to give their views and ask questions about the changes.
Barnet Council gave the scheme the green light in 2010.
Members of the Brent Cross Coalition protest group believe the proposals will result in thousands of extra cars travelling through the area and the doubling of the shopping centre will have a detrimental effect on the community.
Mike McGuinness, development director at Hammerson, said: “The benefits of Brent Cross Cricklewood will be felt for generations to come and we are eager to get on and deliver. These updates to the plans will ensure that the regeneration plan becomes a reality and will help secure investment into the area.”
The exhibitions will begin on June 23 and will run until July 6.
