The landscape strategy knits the new and existing buildings together, creating a ‘green ribbon’ of high quality amenity across the long and narrow site. A new linear green space sits at its heart, whilst new public squares front onto each of the existing towers, ensuring both new and existing residents benefit from the public realm interventions. Across all of these spaces, various opportunities for structured and incidental play are also introduced.

In terms of private amenity, all new homes have a balcony, terrace or garden, which have been carefully designed to LB Barnet’s SPG and LHDG standards, with particular attention given to reducing overlooking.

Planning History

The Granville Road Estate was identified by LB Barnet as an opportunity for new housing in 2008. The council ran a competition to find a developer for the site through a competitive dialogue process, which was won by New Granville LLP, and since 2011 they have been working together with Levitt Bernstein, the local community and the council to bring urgently needed housing to the site.

A planning application was first submitted in August 2014 and finally, it was successfully granted consent in June 2016.
