On behalf of Countryside Properties, TOR working with HTA Design, secured unanimous approval at the London Borough of Barnet Planning Committee for the final phases of the Dollis Valley Estate regeneration. This comprises 223 homes and includes the creation of Dollis Brook Green which represents the largest area of public amenity space within the regeneration masterplan.
Located on the northern outskirts of Chipping Barnet, near High Barnet, Dollis Valley originated as a post-war housing estate and was identified in the Council’s 2012 adopted Local Plan as a priority for regeneration. The design approach for the regeneration of the estate was based on garden suburb principles, with an emphasis on tree planting, pedestrian linkages through the estate connecting to surrounding areas, and a diverse range of house types. This Reserved Matters approval brings to a close what has been a long running project for TOR, originating from the initial hybrid planning consent for 631 homes in 2013. With the first phases already completed and occupied, it has been exciting to see the vision for the regeneration of the estate coming to fruition.
