The plans by property developers Fairview for the run-down premises at 112 and 132 Cricklewood Lane, also include the site being used for three medium-sized business start-up units.

Fairview, which are currently building new homes on the nearby former site of Hendon FC, have applied for permission from Barnet Council to carry out the work.

Jim Holliday, sales and marketing director for Fairview, said: “Regenerating brownfield sites to provide homes which help meet the capital’s continuing need for housing is key to us, which is why we have identified this site off Cricklewood Lane for development.

“During public consultation on our plans, people told us that they were supportive of the regeneration of the site, which will significantly improve the visual appearance of the area.

“We have carefully put together our proposals, which are now with Barnet Council for their consideration.”

Brownfield land is an unused site which can be used for development once it has been checked for any contamination and cleaned up.
