History

A map of East Barnet Valley Urban District in 1894

From 1894 until 1965 East Barnet formed part of the East Barnet Urban District of Hertfordshire. In 1965, it was transferred from Hertfordshire to Greater London; and its former area was amalgamated with Barnet Urban District, Friern Barnet Urban District, Finchley Borough and Hendon Borough to form the new London Borough of Barnet.

Governance

Barnet local elections are held every four years to elect councillors. East Barnet is covered by two wards:

  • East Barnet Ward - East of the railway line and north of Parkside Gardens / Stuart Road.
  • Brunswick Park Ward - East of the railway line and south of Parkside Gardens / Stuart Road.

Note: St Mary the Virgin – the Parish Church of East Barnet – is actually in Brunswick Park Ward.
