Open spaces and environment


Our Open Spaces Strategy


When we asked residents what issues they would like to address, a lack of local functional outdoor space, in particular playgrounds, arose as an issue. So we commissioned Space + Place Design to produce an open spaces and environment strategy for the Grange Big Local area.  Find the strategy below:





We are working on developing play space in our area and hope to support the renovation of the Market Place playground owned by Barnet Council. We would like to set up a "Friends of" group to make this happen.





Barnwood is a small area of woodland on Tarling Road that has been developed as useable green space by GBL and Barnet Council. The aim is for the space to be used by local residents as a gardening area.


A group of local residents has set up a new organisation to manage Barnwood - please get in touch if you would like to be involved. You can also take a look at their posts on Instagram


Trinity Road/Manor Park Underpass Project


We want to improve the gloomy Trinity Road - Manor Park Road underpass and recruited an assessor to look into this work in 2019. The Finchley & Golders Green Area Committee agreed to support the grant application from Grange Big Local for this project.
