The London Borough of Barnet is characterised by lively town centres, high-quality residential development and green spaces. A large area of the borough – 38 per cent – is undeveloped, and there are 200 parks as well as open land, green belt, allotments and playing fields.


Barnet is proud to be home to a mix of communities, including London’s largest Jewish community, who play a significant role in the identity of an ethnically diverse borough. The Council aims to concentrate development in the borough’s town centres and around transport nodes, to consolidate growth and enable the building of sustainable communities.

Developments in the borough are wide ranging and include mixed use town centre projects, neighbourhood master planning, high rise towers, low rise town housing and public realm works. The Council is committed to high quality, context responsive design which improves the lives of its residents. It sees a Quality Review Panel as a key initiative to help facilitate this.

The Barnet Quality Review Panel is chaired by Russell Curtis, Founding Director at RCKa.
