FAQs 

Who owns the site?

Marstead Living has exchanged on the site last year, which was previously occupied by the International Bible Student Association (Jehovah’s Witnesses).

Is the site vacant at the moment?

The Jehovah’s witnesses have now relocated to Chelmsford, and ceased their activities in Watch Tower House. The building is vacant apart of security and maintenance staff.

Will affordable housing be provided within the development?

Yes, the exact amount of affordable housing is currently being discussed with Barnet Council. We are exploring options in terms of viability and location at present.

How many parking spaces will be provided in your plans?

In response to feedback from the local community, we will now be providing an underground car park on the Watch Tower House site as part of our scheme. This will accommodate all of the servicing, residents and visitors to the new buildings.

HOW TALL WILL THE NEW BUILDINGS BE, AND WHAT WILL THE VISUAL IMPACT BE ON THE SURROUNDING AREA?

Our proposals have been amended in response to feedback, to reduce their height and locate them closer towards the centre of the site. Most of the buildings will be three to five storeys in height, and go no taller than five storeys. There are no longer any six storey buildings in our masterplan.

Will the homes be available to people who live in Mill Hill, or will they be targeted at people who live around the UK or abroad?

We expect that most of our residents will be people who live in Mill Hill and Barnet, or have children and grandchildren who live nearby. Our research shows that residents want to stay near to their families, making our offer ideal for ageing residents in North London looking to ‘right-size’, but still be close to loved ones.  

How can I apply to live in one of these homes?
