Douglas Bader Park information and documents

We’ll keep this page updated with all the latest information about Douglas Bader Park as it becomes available.

The planning application and our next steps.

During the ballot period there have been some changes to household need, an increase in families opting for household splits, and many residents requesting to move away permanently.  To ensure all the new information is captured into the overall development we will need some more time to get the detail of the designs right. Therefore, we’re now aiming for a submission in spring 2020 as opposed to our original timescales of winter this year.

  • We cannot begin building until a detailed application is submitted and approved by London Borough of Barnet
  • Following submission, Barnet council have 13 weeks to determine our application.
  • Prior to planning submission, those residents who have expressed a wish to move away from the estate permanently will be contacted to begin finding a home for their household’s needs
  • We will engage further with residents and neighbours ahead of submission on details including landscape design
  • The exact build start date will be dependent on the planning approval date and moving residents out of the first phase
