Next week’s public consultation event is a chance to present our latest proposals. Our proposals will deliver real community benefits:
New homes on brownfield land, preventing urban sprawl and building on green open spaces and the Green Belt.
Affordable housing, 40 per cent of the new homes built will be affordable tenure homes helping to meet local need, supporting a mixed and inclusive community. We will provide a mix of social and affordable rented homes, as well as shared ownership properties suitable for first time buyers.
Help local people stay in the area, we will ensure homes are marketed first to local people through the Mayor’s ‘First Dibs’ initiative.
New green space and public realm through landscaped areas and a new square outside the station building.
A sustainable development that uses renewable forms of energy, carefully designed to minimise environmental impact.
A safer and more accessible station through a new widened and well-lit footpath replacing the narrow walkway off Barnet Hill. We are also exploring new pedestrian crossings outside the station along Barnet Hill.
Increased footfall for local business by improving the connectivity between the station, Chipping Barnet, New Barnet and Underhill, we will encourage footfall and spend on the high street.
New facilities available for community use, including a new community hub, that could provide workspace, a café, flexible spaces for hire and cycle facilities.
