Plans for hundreds of new homes, offices and retail space have been given the go-ahead.

Barnet Council’s planning committee approved permission to bring along new homes and centres as part of the regeneration process of Grahame Park in Colindale.

It means the existing estate can be rebuilt, including the realignment of the road to create a new central avenue.

The development is proposed to bring 364 'affordable' and market sale homes, along with shops, a café and a community centre.

Developers Notting Hill Genesis also plan to build an office for themselves at the estate and a new energy centre.

According to the planning application, there will also be landscaping changes to introduce a safe play area and a woodland walk for cyclists and pedestrians.

Work is due to start in 2024 once tenants of the existing blocks have been moved into new homes being built on phase one of the development.


Tracy Lavers, director of regeneration at Notting Hill Genesis said: “Notting Hill Genesis has been working with Barnet Council on the regeneration of Grahame Park since 2003.

“To date we have enabled delivery of nearly 700 homes, shops, a library, college building, new council offices and park enhancements, with a further 209 affordable homes under construction.

“In 2020 Barnet Council approved a new masterplan to deliver 2,088 new homes and community facilities at Grahame Park.”

Cllr Ross Houston, Barnet Council’s housing and growth committee chair, said: “By improving the quality of housing in Grahame Park we hope to improve the lives of those living in the area and help the transition into a sustainable, resilient community.”

He added: “This development will help realise the council’s ambitions for new and sustainable homes.

“The scheme delivers, alongside affordable housing, new energy and community centres as well as high quality infrastructure.”
