Creative Placemaking Engagement [23 March]: Barnet Council has launched a project to work with the local community to identify and celebrate North Finchley’s many riches, build local pride, and encourage more people to visit the town centre. Community engagement is at the heart of this project, and at this early stage the Council are looking for ideas on, for example:
- What local amenities, routes, heritage assets and community destinations need to be better signposted and celebrated within the town centre.
- Creative ways you and local groups would like to activate the town centre.
- What a North Finchley Town Centre graphic identity must celebrate and communicate to the community and visitors.
- What a town centre website needs to include to help connect people with local businesses.
