Welcome to our second newsletter to keep you up to date with our proposals for the land around Finchley Central station. We will be issuing these regularly as our project progresses. This newsletter reminds you that our public consultation event starts this Sunday, please see full details below.

Our vision
Our vision is to better integrate the station into the town centre, provide new homes (including affordable homes) and improve the public realm through high quality landscaped spaces around the station, including a new pocket park.  We held our first public consultation event in June 2019 and since then have been considering the feedback and revising the proposals. More information can be found on our website.

The first consultation event in June 2019 was well attended.

Benefits
It is extremely important to us that our proposals provide real benefit to the community. We want to deliver:

  • New homes on brownfield land, preventing urban sprawl and preventing building on the Green Belt.
  • Affordable housing, 40 per cent of the new homes 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.
  • Helping locals stay in the area, we will ensure homes are marketed first to local people through the Mayor’s ‘first dibs’ initiative.
  • A new pocket park for all to enjoy.
  • New public realm that provides active public space and new routes to the station.
  • Better routes to the high street and station through new routes, pedestrian crossings and improvements to the Nether Street junction.
  • Increased footfall for local business by improving pedestrian routes along the High Street and to and from the station we will encourage footfall.
  • New facilities available for community use not just new residents. These include a cafe, retail and leisure space, affordable workspace and cycle hub. 
  • A sustainable development that uses renewable forms of energy and carefully designed to minimise environmental impact.
  • Support for local infrastructure through Section 106 and CIL payments. We will be working with Barnet Council and local people to help put this towards projects that the area needs. 

Have your say – our revised proposals
Since our consultation event in June, the team have been studying the feedback. We are continuing to engage with a range of local stakeholders and have revised our proposals accordingly.
