Our Grahame Park scheme has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award for regeneration at the Planning Awards.
The awards recognise the outstanding work across the planning and placemaking sectors. It looks at schemes that not only make a difference to the quality of the physical environment but also have a positive impact on the wellbeing of the community.
Notting Hill Genesis are developing the Grahame Park regeneration project in partnership with Barnet Council. As well as providing 2,088 new homes the area will have a community centre, nursery, shops, cafes, restaurants and flexible workspaces for local businesses.
The regeneration will transform a once unloved area into a community hub that encourages sustainable travel and provides plenty of green spaces through improved infrastructure.
The £700m investment will also enhance the lives of those living on the estate, many of whom are on low incomes. This means increasing job opportunities through improved bus connections to other areas of London and creating a more cohesive community through the state-of-the-art community centre.
Tracy Lavers, director of regeneration at Notting Hill Genesis said:
“It’s great to see our work as part of the Grahame Park estate regeneration masterplan receive this recognition. We have listened to residents and are on track to delivering the promises we made to them.
To date we have enabled delivery of nearly 700 homes, shops, a library, college building, new council offices and park enhancements, with a further 209 affordable homes under construction. The masterplan will create a thriving, beautiful and mixed tenure place that people will be proud to call home.
I want to say a huge thank you to our partners who helped create plans that have support from across our organisation, the local authority and the community.”
