Transport for London and Taylor Wimpey are working together to develop plans to improve the area around Finchley Central station, developing new homes, retail, community facilities and new public space, including a pocket park.
The partners say their vision for Finchley Central is to “deliver a new heart to the town centre: one that provides affordable, sustainable homes, places to work and public spaces to enjoy”.
They aim to link both ends of the existing high street through new public space and improved station access.
The plans would provide new facilities like a community cycle hub that would include areas to store bikes, changing facilities and a café. The pedestrian experience would be improved by reconfiguring congested roads like Nether Street Junction and delivering a new pedestrianized plaza to access the station.
A second round of consultation was held recently. A planning application is expected later in 2020.
