About West Hendon

The regeneration of the West Hendon estate, in the south-west of the borough, aims to create a new mixed neighbourhood of social, private and affordable homes with a range of benefits, including a new school and community centre.

Existing homes on the West Hendon Estate do not meet the Decent Homes Standard. The development scheme will provide a mix of properties to reflect the broad range of home owners in the rest of the borough and London as a whole.

The existing community will be resettled within a new neighbourhood with existing homes replaced with new mixed tenure housing. A more accessible environment will be created where people can walk easily through the neighbourhood, with the creation of a green boulevard that will link York Park with the retail area of West Hendon Broadway. The scheme also includes improved transport links and the creation of a commercial hub. Delivery of new homes is expected to complete in 2027.
