Latest Phase
630 of the estate’s existing properties will be replaced over the next ten years with 1,083 homes across a range of living options including social and affordable rent, shared ownership and private sale.

New Apartmens
652 of the new properties (60%) will be of an “affordable” tenure covering social, affordable and London Living rents and shared ownership. The remaining 431 units will be offered for private sale.

A new council-run community hub will be built offering a range of services including a nursery, GP surgery, hall and health facilities, and residents are also set to benefit from enhanced green spaces and play provision, including a woodland walk and pocket parks – small parks that are accessible to the public.

Grahame Park is Barnet’s largest housing estate, originally comprising 1,777 homes when the first residents moved in in 1971.

Masterplan Approved by GLA

The masterplan for more than 2,000 homes at Barnet’s largest housing estate Grahame Park has been approved by the Greater London Authority (GLA).

The transformation of Grahame Park in Colindale will see 2,088 new homes built over the next 15 years. More than 1,000 of the new homes will be affordable, including 346 for social rent.

Community facilities, including a community centre and a day nursery, will also be provided as well as improvements to Heybourne Park. The proposals include a thriving new high street that will integrate Grahame Park into wider Colindale, improvements to sustainable forms of travel such as buses, electric vehicles, walking and cycling, as well as new green spaces and play areas.

In March 2020, the London Borough of Barnet agreed to give planning consent for 209 affordable homes and a small supermarket, on which work will begin shortly.

Kate Davies, chief executive of NHG, commented: “The GLA’s decision is very welcome and will bring a huge benefit to the area, both in terms of new homes and fantastic new facilities. It is important to us that we go beyond bricks and mortar and help establish a high-quality neighbourhood with the community at its heart.

“We are committed to providing high quality homes and facilities for new and existing residents and will be investing almost £700m over the next 15 years to ensure the sustainability of this vital project, £35m of which will come from our own reserves.”

Councillor Dan Thomas, Leader of Barnet Council, added: “I am absolutely delighted with the GLA’s decision to approve the masterplan for Grahame Park.

“As one of London’s largest boroughs, with a population forecast to increase by more than 30,000 over the next fifteen years, it is essential that we build for Barnet’s future.

“The transformation of Grahame Park will provide high quality homes and facilities for thousands of residents, creating a family-friendly place, while respecting existing communities.”

The announcement also follows the recent decision by the council to invest an additional £33m on a range of improvements over the next three years to the existing homes on the Grahame Park estate.
