The council director responsible for the £4.5bn regeneration of Brent Cross in north-west London has been made redundant as part of a shake-up of Barnet's senior management team.

Stewart Murray, former director for planning, housing and regeneration at the London Borough of Barnet, has left the council, with his post - as well as that of the director for environment and operations - having been deleted.

The two posts are to be merged into a new director for planning, environment and regeneration role, which will be covered by Barnet’s interim director of environment and operations until a new person is recruited, according to a spokesman for Barnet council.

The spokesman said: "The directors post [of planning, housing and regeneration] has been merged with that of environment and operations. This is a long heralded proposal, originally agreed last year." The restructure was first announced by the council shortly after the Comprehensive Spending Review last October.

Murray told delegates at Regeneration & Renewal’s National Regeneration Summit last month that Barnet council
is submitting a bid to the Government to use a funding mechanism known as Tax Increment Financing (TIF), which lets councils borrow money against future business rate income, for the 20-year scheme to regenerate 150ha in Brent Cross and Cricklewood.
