Grahame Park - Colindale

Transforming Barnet
Grahame Park is a radical and unique project to transform the estate in Barnet. The scheme is one of the largest self-funded projects in Europe and will see the construction of around 3,000 new homes. It will also provide shops, gardens, community and health facilities, new parks, and a civic hub.

As well as providing new homes for existing Grahame Park residents, there are homes being built for private sale.

The second stage will provide over 1,000 new homes. These will be social rent, intermediate rent, shared ownership and private sale. There will also be a new community hub which will provide a café, a community hall, workshop rooms, daycare nursery and more.

New streets and open spaces will provide improved bus connections and tree-lined roads. There will also be a cycle and pedestrian route known as the ‘Woodland Walk’.

We want to create new Grahame Park neighbourhoods which are not isolated ‘estates’. We want to give high-quality living environments integrated into the wider area.

Key masterplan principles:

Connecting open spaces

Heybourne Park will be connected, through the introduction of new streets, to the ‘Woodland Walk’. This is a green area running north-south in the east of the area. 

Legible streets

Putting back a more traditional street layout will help with getting around.

A ‘pattern book’ of buildings

The homes be built as four different types (known as villas, mansion blocks, terraces and mews) to create identity.
