Open spaces strategy


Grange Big Local commissioned Space + Place Design to produce an open spaces and environment strategy for the Grange Big Local area.  Find the strategy below:



An associated leaflet, Love Your Patch, Build Your Playground, can be found here (PDF).



Are you interested in playgrounds?

Are you interested in how the open spaces in the area are used?


Grange Big Local is planning a meeting on

Wednesday 27th June at 8pm

at the Ann Owens Centre, Oak Lane, N2 8LT

(the Age UK Barnet building next to the Child Health Centre) to discuss playgrounds.  


The intention is to find volunteers from the area to:


1. Show that people really want and need this;

2. Help raise the money to build the playgrounds;

3. Help design the playgrounds; and

4. Help persuade other stakeholders to make this happen


Please do come along!
