Whitefield Estate

About the Whitefield Estate Relocation

The Whitefield Estate and the residents that live there are an important part of our ambitious Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme. As part of the changes happening in the area, we’re building brilliant new homes that will serve as replacement housing for residents that currently live in the high-rise and low-rise buildings on the estate.

On these pages you will find all the information for the moves, and the future plans for the existing Whitefield Estate.

The first new replacement homes are the 47 homes on Brent Terrace (Plots 53 and 54). These homes have been built with the current Whitefield Estate’s residents at the heart of the design, including private gardens, balconies, a new public park and plenty of planting.

The second set of new homes that is being constructed and is nearing completion is Plot 12. This will also provide high-quality 120 new replacement homes for other residents living in the Whitefield Estate and is in Brent Cross Town.

There has been a formal Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) process to allow this part of the transformation to take place.

The outline permission for the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme was first granted in 2010 and the completion of the new Brent Terrace homes; and near completion of Brent Cross Town’s Plot 12, marks an important milestone for the development of the area.

Demolition Work Schedule

The demolition of the Whitefield Estate is part of the wider redevelopment of Brent Cross Town and will be progressed according to the planning permission granted for the Brent Cross Cricklewood Regeneration Programme.

Work commences: Monday 22 July (for 17 weeks)

Work includes:

  • The first part of the demolition will be of the homes on Whitefield Avenue (Dyson Court, Rawlinson Court, Anderson Court and properties numbered 1 to 16 on Whitefield Avenue).
  • Internal building surveys/inspection.
  • Removal of some unprotected trees and vegetation (only where necessary).
  • Installation of hoarding to secure the site.
  • A new haul road will also be constructed from behind Whitefield Avenue in the Brent Cross Town site to manage future construction traffic.
  • Improvements to the footway on Claremont Road between the new pedestrian and cycle crossing outside Whitefield School and Mapledown School.

Works have been planned to minimise disruption but will require temporary lane closures and footway closures. Traffic will be maintained with signals in place to keep traffic flowing. Clear signage and safe crossing facilities will be provided and bus stops temporarily relocated. Our teams are working hard to minimise the impact on local schools and residents, while ensuring the area is safe and secure, and access is maintained on local roads and footpaths.

Your concerns and queries are important to us. If you have any questions about the works, please contact transformingbx@barnet.gov.uk or visit a member of the Welcome Host Team at The Visitor Pavilion, open daily (Monday to Sunday, 10am to 6pm).
