Landscaping and public spaces

A key principle of the masterplan is to provide 50% of the site as public realm, something that is a hugely important part of making this a successful, biodiverse place. As part of the masterplan, we are proposing four major new public spaces:

Community Green

  • c.0.35ha
  • Open space for

    people to gather and dwell

  • Surrounded by community facilities

  • Play spaces for all ages

Tree-lined Park

  • c.0.64ha

  • Connects Finchley Road and West Hampstead

  • New pedestrian and cycle routes

Central Square

  • c.0.17ha
  • Delivered in the

    first phase

  • Added in direct response to feedback

  • Growing and community gardening

  • Play spaces for all ages

New Town Square

  • 0.30ha
  • Surrounded by

    cafes, shops and leisure spaces

  • Improved pedestrian route from Finchley Road

A focus on biodiversity and greening

This is an exciting opportunity to transform a tarmac car park into a green and sustainable place by:

Planting over 100 new trees and greenery across the whole site

    Partner with London Wildlife Trust to ensure variety of planting, encouraging wildlife and best practice

    Including play and
    rest areas for people of all ages within the landscape

      Adding smart drainage to improve local flooding issues, as well as design solutions like green roofs
