"REVISED plans for a £4billion regeneration of Cricklewood and Brent Cross have been announced by developers.

"The proposals will go on public display on Sunday, and include changes to the existing application, which was approved by Barnet Council in 2010.

"Developers Hammerson and Standard Life Investments’ latest plans for the redeveloped shopping centre include a network of covered streets lined with shops as well as a main square and river side park."

From Retail Week:
"Developers Brent Cross Cricklewood Partners, comprising Hammerson and Standard Life, have made three amendments to the £4bn regeneration of the area, which was granted outline planning permission in 2010.

"As outlined in the existing application, the shopping centre will be fully refurbishment with new stores, hotels, restaurants and leisure facilities developed on the current car park. Parking will be moved to multi-storey car parks around the development. No additional retail space has been added as part of the amendments."

From Barnet Times:
"Under the plans, the existing Brent Cross Shopping Centre will undergo a 'complete transformation' and renovation.

"Car parks surrounding the centre will be developed with shopping areas, hotels, restaurants and cafes.

"A £200million investment in the road network, including a larger Staples Corner junction and improvements to junctions on the M1, A41 and North Circular Road will also be brought forward under the revised plans.

"... Planners will go back to the authority with their amendments later this year, before submitting detailed plans in 2014 if outline consent is given."

From Evening Standard:
"Brent Cross shopping centre went into battle with Westfield today, revealing plans to build shops, restaurants and a cinema under a giant canopy.

"Developers want to create a network of covered streets around London’s oldest mall to help it compete with its rivals in Shepherd’s Bush and Stratford. The Westfields are attracting 70 million shoppers and total sales of £2 billion a year. By comparison, Brent Cross, which opened in 1976, is generating 14 million visits a year.

"Today, developers Hammerson and Standard Life made a new attempt to revive the long-delayed £4 billion regeneration scheme for the shopping centre and wider Brent Cross area."
