Cllr Adam Langleben: "The West Hendon estate. Sold for nothing."

Press nose for web site

"At the West Hendon Public Inquiry we learnt that the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government Mr Eric Pickles MP gave Conservative Barnet Council permission to transfer the land of the entire West Hendon estate to Barratt developments for nothing. Yes, £0.00.

"It was definitely valued at over £2million, as that is the threshold that authorities by law need to seek permission from the Secretary of State to dispose at below market value.

"This makes no sense to me as it is not even as if we are getting a good deal from the developer. Just 25% of the new properties are defined as 'affordable' by the unaffordable standards set by this government. Of the 2000 new homes being built in the same footprint of the existing 680 home estate, just 242 will be at social rent and 250 marketed as 'shared ownership'."
