. Speaking against the plans, Cllr Gill Sargeant (Labour, Colindale) claimed residents had given up objecting to large schemes.
The scheme will have three blocks of flats at 20, 23 and 24 storeys high.
She told the meeting: “(Residents) know the council is strapped for cash and has to approve these high-rise developments, because they know the only way the council can continue to provide services is to have regeneration on this scale.” Cllr Sargeant complained there were only 38 homes planned at affordable rent levels, 21 of which would be three-bedroom units. “It is just not something we can say will really make a big dent in Barnet’s housing provision,” she said. But architect Christophe Egret, founding director of Studio Egret West, told councillors the scheme would help the borough’s post-pandemic recovery. “Anticipating an evolving post-pandemic, flexible lifestyle, the proposed combination of generously sized balconies, winter gardens and roof terraces allow flexible spaces for working, resting at home and accessing nature,” he said.
