Since January 2020 Fairview New Homes and One Housing have been working to develop our proposals for the redevelopment of Victoria Quarter, on the site of the former British Gas Works at Albert Road, New Barnet. The site is currently disused, and Fairview New Homes and One Housing have the combined industry experience to deliver a scheme which can unlock the site’s full potential.
Thank you to all those who came to one of our public events in January, and took the time to provide feedback on our early proposals. We were pleased that both events were well attended, and with the level of response to the consultation we received. Following the consultation we carefully reviewed the feedback on the proposals, and where possible alterations were made as we continued to develop the scheme.
In March 2020 we held a second round of public consultation on updated proposals, to provide an opportunity to review our plans and provide further comment before submitting a planning application to Barnet Council. Unfortunately we had to cancel our planned March exhibitions as part of this consultation, due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
However, all of the information which we had planned to present at the exhibitions was still made available via this website. including an electronic feedback form.
Our proposals represent a chance to deliver a much needed increase in affordable housing provision on a disused brownfield site with existing transport links, therefore also protecting green spaces elsewhere in Barnet.
