Comer Group’s plans for a 1200 home scheme on the site of the North London Business Park – Barnet Council’s former base – are progressing following an appeal.
The Secretary of State agreed with the Planning Inspector’s recommendation to allow the appeal for the hybrid planning application for the phased comprehensive redevelopment of the Park to deliver a residential-led mixed use development.
The detailed element comprises 376 residential units in five blocks reaching eight storeys, the provision of a five form entry secondary school, a gymnasium and a multi-use sports pitch. There will also be new open space and transport infrastructure, including improvements to the access from Brunswick Park Road.
The outline element comprises up to 824 additional residential units in buildings ranging from two to eleven storeys, around to 5000sqm of flexible retail and commercial space, and 2.9 hectares of open space.
