Douglas Bader Park
Find out why we're investing in a new future for Douglas Bader Park.
About Douglas Bader Park
Douglas Bader Park is a Home Group estate made up of 271 affordable homes in Colindale. In April 2016, we carried out a full assessment and found that homes fell short of our expected standards. Three options were considered (on-going maintenance, partial regeneration and total renewal) and, after investigation, it was concluded that a comprehensive regeneration of the entire estate would be the best long-term approach for our residents.
Estate regeneration will ensure residents who would like to stay on the estate can return to a new, high-quality home. We will also provide a mix of homes that reflect the broad range of local housing needs to create a balanced community.
Keeping our residents involved in the future of Douglas Bader Park is central to our approach. In May 2019, residents had their chance to have their say in an independent ballot and voted in favour of the regeneration of their estate.
We asked the question: “Are you in favour of the proposal for the regeneration of Douglas Bader Park?”
Planning permission September 2021
We are delighted to let you know that in September 2021, we received planning permission from Barnet Council for the regeneration plans.
We know our residents have found the length of time to progress this frustrating, but we couldn’t do anything without your YES vote at the ballot and planning approval from Barnet Council.
