The new Local Plan sets out a vision for how Barnet will change as a place over the next 15 years and forms a strategy which emphasises the borough’s attractiveness as a place to live, work and visit.

Together with the Langley Park Residents' Association, the Mill Hill Residents' Association has arranged for the Planning Policy Team to explain this plan to our residents.

This is a public meeting and everyone is invited.
