A new Brent Cross
This will be a dramatic and exciting
place to be, surrounded by shops

levels and forming the principle entrance from the

A full range of new restaurants
We will create a new dining area
to complement the existing offer
at Brent Cross.
Looking out over Brent Cross Main Square this will
include a food terrace offering a great choice for
shoppers, visitors and residents.
New restaurants will be located throughout the
area, from family dining through to Michelin starred
kitchens, open in the evening as well
as during the day.
A much larger Brent Cross
Next to the new cinema and the shops we will create a new,
much larger bus station to serve more routes and more
This will be designed to create a far nicer place to be waiting for a bus,
sheltered from the elements, and a much better arrival point for
the new town centre.
Brent Riverside Park
We already have planning permission to change the
route of theRiver Brent and create a waterside
parkland environment alongside the River and we
are proposing to amend these plans.
The new 'Brent Riverside Park' will be lined with
trees, new planting and spaces to sit and
congregate in, with areas of differing character
from East to West and a footway and cycleway on
the North bank.
The plans will improve the setting of the River and
improve water quality and bio-diversity too, with
wetland areas, bird habitats and areas of reedbed

A multi screen Cinema
Successful town centres include places
for night-time entertainment and this
area will be no different, with a major
new cinema, open into the evening.
Located next to the new streets, open spaces and
catering offer, this will be a place for the night time
as well as when the shops are open.
