Barnet residents, along with those who work, visit and study in the brough and members of Friends of Parks groups are invited to share their views to shape a new Parks and Open Spaces Strategy being drafted by Barnet Council.

The consultation, along with other findings from engagement carried out by council officers, will inform the new Parks and Open Spaces Strategy, the first since 2016.  The strategy will set out plans for protecting, maintaining and improving parks and other green spaces in the borough.

The closing date for contributions to the consultation is 18th March 2024.

Details of the consultation, including links to online forms and to request paper copies, can be found at the Barnet Council website:
