Derelict houses near M1 turn-off at Hendon could be demolished for new flats in Great North Way
A row of derelict houses near the M1 turn-off at Hendon could be demolished to make way for several new blocks of flats.
City and Westminster Developments Ltd is looking to build a large housing development off the A1 Great North Way, at the junction with Ashley Lane.
The designs contain five blocks of flats for 55 homes comprising of four four-storey buildings and one three-storey building.
The eight existing semi-detached homes, which have been empty and boarded up for several months, would be flattened.
Tonight, Barnet Council’s planning and environment committee is due to assess the application, which includes a basement car park with 66 spaces.
The authority has received five letters of objection to the plans, with complaints ranging from a loss of trees to increased congestion and parking.
Planning officers have recommended the application be approved subject to the developer paying more than £33,000 in Section 106 payments – money to off-set the impact of the development.
The derelict homes are visible to drivers turning off the M1 at Hendon
