How have Crouch End and Muswell Hill managed to create buzzy lively busy and varied high streets? Demographically they are similar to Barnet yet they support local businesses as well as High Street stores. Barnet has money - house prices constantly rising (otherwise why would Foxtons and the like spend money to open up new offices). Spend the "redevelopment" money on sorting out parking, lowering rents and entice Barnet residents to spend their money locally. I for one live close enough to walk to the high street - when I get there tho I have nothing to spend money on unless I want to get my eyes checked I can see the price label in any one of the charity shops
