Developing an Economic Development and Growth Strategy for Barnet

Commissioned by the London Borough of Barnet

This research investigated the baseline analysis of the Barnet economy from an enterprise perspective, providing evidence of the trends, key drivers and major barriers to business growth.

Building on evidence from the Barnet Economic Insight (2011), data was updated to provide the most current assessment of the borough's business dynamics and comparison with Greater London and neighbouring local authorities in two sub regions, focusing on two sub-regions with the potential for local economic partnership working and assisting the future growth of Barnet's economy:

  • (i) North London Strategic Alliance: Barnet, Waltham Forest, Haringey, Enfield and Redbridge.
  • (ii) The A5/A406 growth corridor: Brent and Harrow London boroughs and the Hertfordshire local authorities of Dacorum, Hertsmere and Watford.

The research also involved SME case study and supply-side business support interviews with a focus on key business sectors/clusters revealed by ward level growth trend analysis and provided clear guidance and insight to Barnet Council into the future business support requirements of these key growth sectors.
