Proposed Development

Learn about our proposals for a new residential development in North Finchley

This 2.64 acre site was formerly occupied by Homebase, with Taylor Wimpey acquiring the land in November 2020. At the time a detailed planning application had already been submitted by Redrow Homes, seeking approval for 307 high-quality apartments.

Many residents will be aware that Barnet Council refused permission for our original application and that this refusal of permission was appealed and considered by an independent Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State.  The Inspector upheld the Council’s decision and dismissed the appeal. A copy of the Inspector’s decision is available here.

Having reviewed the Inspector’s decision and the reason for refusal of the previous scheme, we are preparing a revised planning application for the site which we hope to submit to Barnet Council in the near future.

Public feedback is invaluable to us, and helps us build communities that people are proud to live in. We would love to hear your thoughts about the revised proposals presented on this page and our team will be on hand to answer any questions you have.

Please send any comments or requests to meet with our project team to the following email address and we will be in touch with you very soon – [email protected]

Proposed homes in North Finchley

To give residents and interested parties an insight into our revised plans, we have produced a short presentation to show a comparison between the previous scheme and our emerging amended proposals. We are still in the early stages of our revised proposals and this is reflected in the images we are currently able to show you. You can view the presentation here.

As part of our revised proposal, it is expected that the number of new homes will reduce from 307 to 260, as a result of reduced height and mass of the blocks. It is also likely that the amount of car parking will be reduced to provide an opportunity to bring some of the amenity space to ground floor level and provide more interaction with neighbouring streets.

Community and Sustainability

We believe it’s our responsibility to support our communities, so that people are proud to call them home. That’s why we regularly donate time and money to local causes, and are passionate about investing in the areas we build. In 2020 we contributed £287 million to local communities via our planning obligations to provide local infrastructure around the country, including affordable homes, public transport and education facilities.
We’re committed to building greener, healthier homes for us all. From energy efficient fixtures and fittings, to cutting our carbon emissions, and enhancing existing green spaces, we build sustainability into everything we do.
