The development is being built in harmony with the breathtaking Welsh Harp by:

– Protecting its SSSI (Site of Specific Scientific Interest) status
– Ensuring buildings are up to 40 metres from the waterside
– Creating a minimum 20 metre buffer zone
– Managing access to the Welsh Harp shore
– Undertaking large-scale tree and shrub planting
– Creating new bird and bath habitats

The regeneration is also providing over 3,500 sq.m of commercial space, a new community facility, a health centre, a new park and environmental improvements to provide access to the Welsh Harp, which will be directly connected to The Broadway for the first time since the current estate was built.

Planning History

Outline planning consent for the regeneration of the estate was granted by Barnet Council in 2013. The consent is a ‘Hybrid Planning consent’ for the demolition and redevelopment of the West Hendon Estate to accommodate up to 2,000 residential units, a new two-form entry primary school, community building and commercial uses and associated open space and infrastructure.
