Benefits

As an experienced developer partnership, we have the combined expertise to unlock the potential of this complex site, and deliver the following benefits for the local area and the Borough as a whole:

  • Much-needed new homes for Barnet, including at least 209 affordable homes
  • Regeneration of an underused brownfield site, helping to protect valuable greenfield and Green Belt land elsewhere in the Borough
  • New commercial/community space, responding to the needs and desires of the local community following public consultation
  • New public realm for residents and the wider community to enjoy, including a gateway garden, park plaza and green pedestrian access routes to create a transition with Victoria Recreation Ground
  • Retention of the existing tree line, as well as new landscaping and boundary treatments, creating a new park skyline integrating the development with the surrounding area
  • Circa £11m of Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funding to be paid by Fairview and One Housing for investment in local infrastructure
  • Removing the existing overpass and replacing it with a new well-lit footpath at ground level, crossing under the railway line
  • A new coffee shop, following feedback from the local community
  • Creating a natural transition between the Victoria Recreation Ground, the development and the surrounding area
