29/04/2015 - Dollis Valley Regeneration - Phase 2 (Lease and Mortgages) ref: 5749    Recommendations Approved

Phase 1 of the Dollis Valley regeneration scheme is now nearing completion. In accordance with the decision of Assets, Regeneration and Growth Committee of 8th September 2015 the Council needs to hand over the next development phase, known as Phase 2a This will be achieved by entering into a deed of variation of the Development Agreement to provide for the grant of a development Lease of Phase 2a, being land which is not currently subject to residential occupation. The development lease of phase 2b will be completed once vacant possession of that additional land is obtained, it is anticipated towards the end of 2015.  

 

Associated with the hand over of this phase, the council needs to obtain vacant possession of a block of residential properties, 1 to 15 The Ridge. The acquisition of these houses is underwritten by a Compulsory Purchase Order with a vesting date of 30th March 2015.

 

Under the terms of the Development Agreement leaseholders on the estate have been offered the option of reinvesting the value of their existing properties into a shared equity purchase of a new home on the estate, under which agreement the Council would purchase and hold the balance of the equity.

 

In Phase 2 five leaseholders have opted to take up the Council’s offer and the Council now needs to provide the funding of the equity that it will retain in these five homes so that Countryside can complete the sales and move the leaseholders out of the homes which will need to be demolished for the next phase.

 

Prior to the grant of the Development Lease of phase 2a the Council needs to extinguish any private rights over the land that may exist in order to enable the development to proceed in accordance with the planning permission.

 

The majority of this land was formerly public Highway with the remainder being predominantly amenity land associated with the Estate. When the Council promoted the Stopping up Order only one party claimed any private rights and that party has already agreed a deed of release.  The Council is not aware of any other private rights but it needs to appropriate this land to Planning prior to completing the Development Lease so that any that may exist are extinguished and they will not hinder implementation of the planning permission.

 

Following completion of the appropriation the Council will enter into the Development lease of Phase 2a which will also enable Countryside to construct the social housing needed to rehouse Council Tenants in the remaining phases.

06/01/2014 - Interim Update Report on the Growth and Regeneration Programme ref: 5107    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Business Management Overview and Scrutiny Committee

Made at meeting: 06/01/2014 - Business Management Overview and Scrutiny Committee

Decision published: 03/02/2014

Effective from: 06/01/2014

Decision:

The Committee welcomed the Leader of the Council, the Strategic Director for Growth & Environment (Pam Wharfe) and the Head of Regeneration (Tony Westbrook) who were in attendance for the item.

 

A Member expressed concern that not all of the regeneration schemes detailed in the report appeared to have comprehensive proposals regarding infrastructure investment. 

 

Members raised a particular concern relating to the provision of health facilities in regeneration areas.  The Committee noted that schemes often included the provision of space for health facilities to meet new demand.  However, as there was no requirement of GPs or other health services to fill these spaces, they often went unfilled.  The Head of Regeneration advised the Committee that an Estates Working Group had been established with representation from Barnet Clinical Commissioning Group, NHS England, NHS Property Services and the Council to improve joint working on NHS estates issues.

 

In relation to the regeneration of town centres, a Member commented that the Council had been reliant on the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund (OLF).  The Leader advised the Committee that although the town centre improvements had not been directly funded by Barnet, the OLF was still taxpayers money which had been used to improve the local area. 

 

A Member commented that the proportion of affordable and shared ownership properties in the regeneration areas had declined since the schemes had first been proposed.  It was considered that this had a direct impact on the Council’s ability to meet the housing needs of residents.  The Leader of the Council informed the Committee that economic circumstances had changed since the regeneration schemes had first been approved.  As a consequence, developers and the Council had been required to revisit housing proportions on regeneration schemes.  He considered it preferable for the regeneration schemes to continue with revised mix of tenures than for the schemes to stall because they were no longer economically viable for developers.  Members were informed that 1,000 new homes had been delivered in Barnet last year.

 

In relation to the Granville Road regeneration scheme, a Member questioned what the outcome of the public consultation meeting held in August 2013 had been.  Officers reported that parking had been a major concern and that proposals were being developed to manage this better in the local area.  In addition, the proposed design of the scheme had been amended following feedback from residents; a detailed scheme would be forthcoming in 2014. 

 

Responding to a question, the Leader confirmed that the Council had not yet procured a development partner for the southern side of the Brent Cross Cricklewood Regeneration Scheme.  It was noted that on the northern side, meetings with Standard Life and Hammerson continue, to hopefully bring this part of the scheme forward soon.

 

A Member highlighted that of the 469 housing units delivered on regeneration schemes in 2012/13, none were affordable.  The Leader commented that challenging targets relating to affordable housing in future years were expected to be achieved.

 

The Committee expressed concern regarding the design of some of the regeneration schemes and the potential for there to be a lack of community.  It was also noted that the lifetime of the housing on the regeneration schemes was only expected to be around 60 years; the Committee considered that the new homes should have a much longer lifespan.  It was pointed out that this is the normal design life for new homes.

 

RESOLVED that:

 

1.     Officers be requested to provide a breakdown of the payments made to development partners for the Council’s regeneration schemes and details of any costs recovered from development partners.

 

2.     The Committee are concerned that there will be inadequate health provision on regeneration estates and welcome the work of the Estates Working Group referred to in the preamble above.

 

3.     The Committee are concerned that affordable housing targets for regeneration schemes have not been achieved and the consequential impact on residents in housing need.

10/01/2014 - West Hendon Deed of Variation ref: 5119    For Determination

The report seeks final approval on authority delegated by the Cabinet Resources Committee on 18 April 2013 to the Director for Place, in consultation with the Leader of the Council, to agree the Deed of Variation to the Principal Development Agreement for the West Hendon Regeneration Scheme. This will enable both the Council and Barratt Metropolitan Limited Liability Partnership to commence the next phase, known as Phase 3a of the West Hendon Regeneration scheme delivering circa 216 units of which 74 are affordable by March 2015.  The report also seeks authority to grant Barratt Metropolitan Limited Liability Partnership an access Licence to commence Phase 3a as set out in schedule 42 of the Principal Development Agreement. A plan outlining the designated area and hoarding line is edged in blue on the attached plan 716_00_SK_12. During this period the Council will exercise its powers to use Ground10a and Compulsory Purchase Order consents to achieve vacant possession of properties if required. Since 18 April 2013 the Regeneration Service has been in legal negotiations with Barratts and its lawyers and has concluded the revisions to the PDA to commence this next phase. A copy highlighting key changes is attached to the Executive summary.

Approval is sought to enter into a Deed of Supplemental Agreement to allow the parties to waive Conditions Precedent relating to highway stopping up order(s), so that the Regeneration Agreement becomes unconditional in respect of Phase 1 of the proposed regeneration scheme. This will avoid delaying the project unnecessarily, and allows the development partner to commence the development programme/demolitions for Phase 1.  This will also allow the Council to transfer the Phase 1 development land, and drawdown from its development partner a large proportion of the Minimum Council Land Value for Phase 1.

Made at meeting: 02/05/2013 - Business Management Overview and Scrutiny Committee

Decision published: 19/06/2013

Effective from: 02/05/2013

Decision:

The Leader of the Council presented a report on Brent Cross / Cricklewood Regeneration Scheme which had been considered by the Cabinet Resources Committee on 18 April 2013.

 

The Leader of the Council advised the Committee that the progression of the Southern part of the site was very important in delivering the whole scheme.

 

A Member expressed concern about the amount of time that the scheme had taken to date.  The Leader of the Council advised the Committee that Officers had worked hard to progress the scheme to its current stage. 

 

The Committee raised the issue of infrastructure on the South side of the site, and advised that that a strategic approach was needed in to meet infrastructure needs and provide sufficient affordable housing.  The Leader of the Council also advised that a Section 73 proposal would improve pedestrian access in the area.  Members commented on the importance of linking of the North and South ends of the site. 

 

A Member requested that the Committee were provided with feedback on the current situation for schools within the regeneration scheme area, and advised Officers that Members should be kept informed on the current situation in relation to affordable housing and job opportunities. 

 

The Committee agreed that, given the strategic importance of the scheme, the Business Management Overview and Scrutiny Committee should receive more updates in order to give the issue a greater focus.

 

RESOLVED that:-

 

1)        The Committee receive an annual report on the Brent Cross / Cricklewood Scheme to update the Committee on the progress.

Decision published: 18/12/2012

Decision:

Stephen McDonald delivered a presentation on progress with each of the large scale regeneration schemes in Barnet, highlighting key facts and current issues with each of the five major schemes, as well as updating on significant recent progress, for example the signing of a Principal Development Agreement for the redevelopment of Dollis Valley and additional funding being secured for Grahame Park.

 

He stressed how the housing schemes were intended to stimulate mixed tenure communities, and the extent of growth, for example Colindale (including Grahame Park) would see an increase in population equivalent to a town the size of Canterbury.

 

It was agreed the significance of these changes could not be underestimated and that partners should disseminate the issues further. Mr McDonald offered to deliver the presentation to any management teams to assist.

 

The Leader of the Council also highlighted that successful regeneration depended on other partners, for example TfL investment in the Northern Line infrastructure to increase capacity.

ACTION; Stephen McDonald

 

Dr Sumners confirmed the CCG’s support for this agenda, highlighting the differential of over seven years life expectancy between the Borough’s most affluent and deprived wards.
