In 2020, the council adopted the Golders Green Town Centre Strategy, which identifies place-specific opportunities for improvement and regeneration, as well as local treasures that need to be supported and celebrated.
The strategy was developed through extensive engagement and consultation and represents the views of local people, stakeholders and council officers.
What is the council doing now?
Using the Town Centre Strategy as the basis, the council is starting the delivery of a series of public space improvements within Golders Green, to transform the town centre into an attractive area for people to live, work and visit.
In 2022 Jan Kattein Architects and We Made That were appointed to support the development of these projects and create multiple opportunities for the local community to get involved and help shape the town centre.
To support and inform the development of proposed larger-scale public realm improvements outlined in the Town Centre Strategy, the council will work with the local community to develop and deliver action plans for way-finding and cultural activation to make Golders Green a more accessible, active and vibrant place. A Public Realm Design Framework will also be developed to establish principles and guidance for larger scale public realm improvements, including planting, accessibility and sustainability. Improvements will be made in a number of key locations across the town centre in 2024.
