Transport for London: Arnos Grove Station Car Park development

arnos grove car park redevelopment


Connected Living London, a partnership between TfL and Grainger plc, is proposing a Build-to-Rent residential development on the site of the Arnos Grove Station Car Park, providing around 150 new homes, 40% of which will be affordable.

Following our Meet the Team event in June of this year, we would like to invite you to attend a public exhibition where we will present our plans to the community. This will be an opportunity for you to learn more about the partnership, the site, provide your feedback and review the proposals.

We hope that you will be able to attend this event as we are committed ensuring local residents have a full opportunity to review and comments on the proposals.

The public events will take place from 15:30 to 19:30 on Wednesday 6 November and, from 15:30 to 19:30 on Thursday 7 November.

Address:
Garfield Primary School,
Upper Park Rd, Arnos Grove,

A petition against building housing on the Arnos Grove station car parks has been launched by Cllr Daniel Anderson and to date has attracted nearly 900 "signatures".

Cllr Anderson argues that car parking will be displaced onto neighbouring streets, resulting in a controlled parking zone being introduced. That it will lead to more congestion. That more front gardens will be turned into car parks, leading to flooding and environmental problems. That it will do nothing to solve the borough's lack of truly affordable housing. And that it will ruin the appearance of the listed station.
