The number of ‘business use’ parking places available to Barnet employees and partners has been increased from an original 100 spaces to 290 for those people who need car parking spaces to carry out their day to day duties.
Managers have been asked to notify the project team of any staff members that need their car to carry out their daily duties at work and those people have been allocated parking close to the office. Your service lead will be able to tell you if you are on the list that has been agreed by Directors.
The dedicated business parking zones will be spread across two locations. The RAF Museum and Platt Hall. Both are a 5 – 10 minute walk from the Colindale Office. There are 200 places at the Royal Air Force Museum (Grahame Park Way, London, NW9 5LL) and 90 available at Platt Hall.
RAF Car Park
For Business Users allocated to the RAF Car Park the new Automated Number Plate Recognition is now live and will be operating to our term time arrangements from Tuesday 3rd September.
This means that in addition to the parking available in the North Car Park a further 100 spaces for Business Users become available in the Main Customer Car Park during term time only. Term dates can be found on Barnet Council’s website.
Please access the site via the RAF North Car Park and park there until full. Once the North Car Park is full, users will be notified via the messaging board. Only then should users go through to park in the Main Customer Car Park where 100 additional spaces are made available during term time. Once 100 additional users have parked in the main car park the messaging board will show LBB Staff Car Park Full. Users can either choose to pay to park, or choose to leave the car park within the 30 minute grace period without paying. Any user who does not pay after being advised that the Main Customer Car Park is full could receive a parking ticket.
Users should NOT park in the five spaces marked ‘LBB’ (these are for specially authorised vehicles only) not Business Users.

If you need to leave your vehicle overnight please give you license plate number to Royal Air Force Museum Control Room or Kingdom Security before leaving.
If you have been allocated access to Platt Hall Car Park you will have been given two key fobs. One to access and drive through the two main entrance / exit gates on Aerodrome Road and Grahame Park Way and one to enter / exit the pedestrian gates positioned next to them. Please see attached map and further instructions for details.
Car parking spaces for Barnet staff and partners are clearly marked with LBB (the shaded areas on map). There are also dedicated spaces for the pool car fleet clearly marked Car Pool. Please do not park in these spaces.
Please note, there is currently no vehicle access via Grahame Park Way, please access the car park via Aerodrome Road until further notice. The pedestrian gates on both sides of the car park are now open however, to allow you easy access to Colindale Office.
