Used by the Metropolitan Police for around 80 years, the site is currently inaccessible and has always been closed off to the public. Soon it will become part of the Colindale community for the very first time, with spaces and amenities for everyone to share.

We have developed plans for a thriving new neighbourhood with space for all the benefits, services and amenities that this area needs. We are proposing:

  • A high-quality, landscaped development that includes a number of landmark buildings;
  • Much-needed new homes for Colindale – a mix of family houses and flats to create a truly mixed community from single professionals and young couples to growing – all designed by some of the best architects in the country;
  • 4 hectares of public spaces including a large neighbourhood park, sports and play facilities and pedestrian and cycle trails for the entire community to use and enjoy;
  • A three-form entry primary school with space for more than 600 pupils, a nursery and onsite community facilities;
  • Space for a new health centre;
  • A real high street environment along Colindale Avenue with the creation of a new plaza with new shops, cafes and restaurants;
  • A supermarket big enough for a weekly shop;
  • Accessible, safe and attractive walking and cycling routes through the site, connecting new and existing communities and linking through to the tube station, bus stops and high street;
  • Improvements to Colindale tube station, local roads and junctions and new bus stops in better locations;
