In February, Barnet Council in north-west London went against the advice of its own planning officers and refused permission for the scheme. But in May, Khan called the application in for review, saying the council was ‘significantly under-delivering’ against its housing completion and affordable housing targets.
Hawkins\Brown and dMFK’s proposed development includes 448 flats across 19 buildings of three to nine storeys and 12 two-storey houses, along with new offices, leisure facilities and a café.
“This development offers a significant number of high-quality homes, which will be available through shared ownership to help people struggling to buy a home on the open market.”
