Regeneration Update – December 2016

Barnet Council is currently regenerating three estates across the borough: Dollis Valley, West Hendon and Grahame Park.  These projects will require a number of residents to vacate their properties.

Although households who have secure tenancies are guaranteed a new home on the regeneration estates, those with non-secure tenancies are not.  Therefore, non-secure residents are being supported by Barnet Homes to move elsewhere. Click here for more information.

The table below shows an update on future regeneration projects.

Before residents move…

Before residents move from these blocks, they will be assessed by our Housing Needs Officers. Housing Needs Officers may contact residents 12 months before they need to move.

The importance of making a Community Contribution

In 2015 and 2016, we have been successful in rehousing residents within the borough of Barnet and in neighbouring boroughs, partly thanks to the fact that they are making a ‘community contribution’ by working, volunteering or being in training or education. What is clear from the data so far is that having a community contribution increases a customer’s chance of being allocated accommodation in, or around, their current neighbourhood.

This is, as always, dependent on the availability of properties. However, having a community contribution will always help and give a customer greater priority for accommodation.

For more information about volunteering in Barnet, contact CommUNITY Barnet on 0208 8364 8400 or volunteer@communitybarnet.org.uk.
