We are consulting on proposals for the redevelopment of the 0.83-hectare brownfield site and hope to submit a planning application to the London Borough of Barnet soon.
The site will be recognised under many names: the Honda showroom, NTS garage and Halfords autocentre all make up the site, which sits on the corner of Edgware Road and Hyde Estate Road in Colindale, Barnet. For the purposes of the planning application, we have referred to the scheme as The Rockery at the Hyde.
The Rockery at the Hyde consists of the 0.59-hectare Honda car showroom to the east, and the 0.24-hectare NTS garage and Halfords Autocentre to the west. This makes up 0.83-hectares of concreted brownfield land.
In terms of history the car showroom of approx. 2,340 sqm received planning permission in 2009, whereas the industrial and storage unit were builtin 1998. Both sites have since been subject to various applications for minor alterations to both buildings.
The site is not subject to any site-specific designations in the Barnet Local Plan. However, it is worth noting that the site is positioned 0.5 miles to the north-west of the Brent Cross and Cricklewood Regeneration Opportunity Area, and approximately one mile to the south of the designated Colindale/Burnt Oak Regeneration Opportunity Area.
