Daily Mirror: "Great gran forced out of her Barnet West Hendon home of 30 years by compulsory purchase order" (and Hammerson's Brent Cross is next)

"Adelaide's two-bedroom home in West Hendon, Barnet, is being compulsorily purchased by the council along with around 680 others in the name of ‘regeneration’. Residents say 95% of tenants and leaseholders face eviction as the land is redeveloped in the £520million Hendon Waterside project next to the Welsh Harp reservoir.

" 'I thought I was going to see out my days here,' says Adelaide. Instead she has no choice but to sell to Barratt Homes which has offered her just £175,000 for the flat.

" 'It would cost me £407,000 to buy a two-bedroom flat on the new development,' says Adelaide, her voice struggling through asthma made worse by living on a building site.

" 'I'm a pensioner. Who is going to give me a mortgage? How would I pay all the new service charges? They just want us all out of London. They want new people here to enjoy the waterside'."
