On Monday 20th March 2017 we celebrated the official launch of Opendoor Homes as a Registered Provider.

At Basing Way, we will be building 14 new homes on the site of under-used garages.

Opendoor Homes will deliver an initial 320 homes for affordable rent for Barnet residents. These new homes will be owned and managed by Opendoor Homes, a subsidiary of The Barnet Group, which is wholly owned by Barnet Council. The new build programme is funded with a loan of up to £65m from Barnet Council.

By May 2017 building work is expected to commence on a number of schemes on infill sites in the borough, with the initial 320 homes due for completion by the summer of 2020.
