The new development at Golders Green station will not be taking place.

A meeting between Barnet Council and Transport for London concluded with the decision that the development on the site will not be taken forward at this time.

This comes after a great deal of backlash from those living in the area and councillors meant the planning brief would be redrafted last month.

Issues that were raised included air pollution in the covered bus shelter and the dismantling and moving of a war memorial.

Council Leader Cllr Richard Cornelius said: “There has been a lot of unrest concerning a development at this location. “We are pleased TfL have taken on board the concerns expressed by the local community to the Planning Brief and TfL will now go back to the drawing board to review their options.”

The council has also said it will continue talks with TfL to look at other sites in the borough that can be developed for homes and transport.

Garden Suburb councillor John Marshall added: "We will continue to fight for the interests of local residents. 

“We all agree that there must be no prospect of any future redevelopment of the depot and sidings that adjoin the Hampstead Garden Suburb Conservation Area.”

Finchley and Golders Green MP Mike Freer said he was pleased with TfL being "responsive" to people's views.

He said: "While pounding pavements across the constituency during the General Election campaign, I and local councillors campaigning with me were made aware of the genuine concerns many Golders Green residents raised on the doorstep – as well as residents from across the constituency – about the whole development which was out of keeping with the town centre.

"Given this most recent development, I’m sure I can speak for many residents today by welcoming the fact the plans will not be proceeding."
