West Hendon’s regeneration is transforming the area, providing significant lifestyle, social and economic benefits for residents and the wider community.
It is now 2023 and the work is nearing two-thirds completion, with Phases 1-3 now complete, and Phase 4 set to be complete by 2025, delivering a total of c.1286 homes. Phases 1 through 4 have also seen the delivery of key amenities on site, including new shops (such as the Co-Op), the Community Hub, The Green, play space and the Cool Oak Lane footbridge.
Most of the estate’s original residents are now enjoying their new homes and the community has also welcomed many new residents who have chosen to make West Hendon their home.
Work will begin on Phases 5 and 6 later this year, which will deliver the last 732 homes, 172 of which will be affordable. Phases 5 and 6 will also include additional playspaces, a new pedestrian walkway from the Broadway to the Welsh Harp, the Silk Stream pedestrian bridge, and a new space for community or commercial use along the Broadway.
When complete West Hendon will have delivered over 2,000 new homes.
This website provides residents, both old and new, with the resources to stay informed and participate in the ongoing physical and community development work.
Integrating the new neighbourhood with its surrounding context will create enjoyable places to live where people want to stay, by providing significant benefits including public parks, play spaces and community facilities.
The development creates new routes to link existing public open spaces and streets around the site. Those moving to the homes will bring valuable custom to support and sustain local business on the A5 West Hendon Broadway.
This will help build a vibrant and sustainable community.
The redevelopment of the West Hendon Estate offers the opportunity to re-establish a clear visual connection between the site and the Welsh Harp, whilst respecting its important ecology.
The proximity of rail and bus services means that the site is well connected to other parts of Barnet and central London. This accessibility, when considered in combination with the potential to improve the route to Hendon Station, makes the site suitable for a new high-density residential community.
The proposed new homes, together with the generous public parks, new primary school, community centre, pedestrian bridge, links to Metropolitan open space and high-quality architecture will build upon the early phases of the regeneration already completed by BMLLP.
This integrated approach to regeneration will transform the West Hendon Estate into a thriving and sustainable neighbourhood, which is integral to London but with its own distinct character related to its urban and natural setting adjacent to the Welsh Harp.
