The leader of Barnet Council was full of praise when he visited the new homes being built by our Chiltern region at Millbrook Park.
We’re delivering 241 high quality properties on the site of the former Inglis Barracks, as well as office space, a panoramic park and a primary school. More than two thirds of the homes sold have gone to local people living with five miles.
Council leader Cllr Richard Cornelius was given a guided tour by land director Nick Laugharne and marketing and communications manager Naomi Burrell. He learned about the apprentices on site and affordable homes being delivered.
Cllr Cornelius said: “Barnet Council is a key partner in the regeneration of the Inglis Barracks site. We have always viewed it as an ideal location for a new community but it is so important to get the detail right.
“That is why I was keen to get on site today and see what Linden Homes is delivering. I have to say that I was impressed not just by the quality of new build and design, but also by the sympathetic restoration of the former Officers’ Mess.
“I was particularly pleased to learn that Linden Homes and its contractors have taken on eight apprentices between them on this site. This helps the industry retain the skills it needs but also gives these young people a future career. The site is being transformed at a rapid pace.”
Over £133m has been committed by Linden Homes to improving local communities since 2010.
Linden Homes has contributed over £47.7 million to education throughout the UK since 2010.
