Barratt London drives major regeneration at West Hendon


Barratt London’s Hendon Waterside is transforming West Hendon and neighbouring Brent Cross. 

Forming part of the regeneration of West Hendon, Barratt London’s Hendon Waterside development, delivered by Barratt Metropolitan LLP – a Barratt London and Metropolitan joint venture, in partnership with the London Borough of Barnet and Barnet Homes – will help create 2,000 new homes, including 25% affordable homes.

The regeneration will bring a new community school, increased public and communal amenity space, and employment for many people in the construction trade during the build. Hendon Waterside will be a fresh start for the area and neighbouring Brent Cross, which has been granted a £4 billion masterplan to the proposed new town centre. The masterplan will create 7,5000 homes, 27,000 jobs, three re-built schools, new parks and community facilities, and major road and public transport improvements.

Gary Patrick, Regional Sales Director at Barratt London says: “Barratt is committed to the regeneration and improvement of every area where we operate. Hendon Waterside will exemplify how new mixed use developments which provides attractive, affordable housing can bring a new vibrancy to an area which has a lot of promise”.

Hendon Waterside is set within 170 hectares of beautiful green surroundings overlooking the Welsh Harp reservoir and just 17 minutes to Kings Cross from Hendon train station. The development has been awarded a prestigious Built for Life commendation: a government-endorsed accolade for well-designed homes and a recognised industry seal of excellence. Once completed, Hendon Waterside will bring over 2,000 one, two and three-bedroom homes most with a private balcony or terrace.

The Hendon Waterside regeneration masterplan will transform the area into a successful, sustainable community, with Mayor of London Boris Johnson stating in Time Series: “The scheme would “boost the capital's economic growth” and bring “new vitality to a part of the Capital in need of regeneration”. The development will vastly improve the public spaces to make the area a desirable place to live, work and spend time in.
