Hill gets go-ahead for North London estate rebuild

House builder The Hill Group together with housing association the Home Group will deliver the transformation of the 1970’s estate to provide over 750 homes, ensuring existing residents benefit from new high-quality homes.

This 10-year programme will now start imminently with the delivery of the first phase of 38 affordable homes.

Construction will take place in three phases and include the demolition of all current residential units on site.

Architect Levitt Bernstein has designed the 3.9 hectare site to create a green neighbourhood centred around a new urban square.

In total 272 affordable homes will be delivered alongside 481 homes for private sale.

The affordable homes will be delivered as part of the first two phases and will include houses, maisonettes and apartments to cater for all members of the existing local community.

Andy Hill, Group chief executive of The Hill Group said: “As one of the schemes to be balloted under Mayor Sadiq Khan’s mandate to allow residents a vote on estate regeneration, achieving planning success for the Douglas Bader Park estate is a significant achievement.”

Sustainability and well-being will be a key focus of the development. Around 20% of all parking spaces will be provided as EV charging points and there will be over 1,500 cycle parking places. All homes will benefit from photovoltaic panels and air source heat pumps.
