An MP is continuing her campaign against the plans to build flats on a Tube station car park.

Transport for London has presented revised plans to build flats on High Barnet tube station’s car park, including scrapping plans to build at the northern end, close to the junction of Meadway and Barnet Hill.

TfL had appointed Taylor Wimpey as developer for the scheme, in which almost all parking spaces will be lost to high-rise housing.

The new plans reduced the height and scale of building, but Chipping Barnet MP Theresa Villiers says they are still "totally unacceptable".

Ms Villiers said: “The changes made to the TfL plans don't go nearly far enough to alleviate the concerns of local residents. The fact is that TfL have deleted two blocks and then left the plans pretty much the same as before.

“This means almost no parking for residents using the station and the same high-density housing at the southern end of the site.”

She added: “This proposal still threatens the suburban character of Barnet and would see residential streets even more choked with parked cars than they are already. If we're going to encourage people to use public transport, it makes sense to retain a car park at the station, which is on the end of the line.

“This development remains totally unacceptable, even with the changes made. I want to see good quality housing, which local people can afford, built on brownfield sites; but not on land like this which is providing such a vital local amenity.”

A TfL spokesperson said: “Our proposals for our site at Barnet offer a fantastic opportunity to deliver affordable, high quality homes, while also generating revenue to reinvest into the transport network. Having carried out a period of engagement with the community, we have taken on board their feedback and used this to amend our proposals, which we will be sharing with the local community later this week at our consultation events.

“As well as delivering homes for London, the proposals for the site retain some car parking spaces - including increased Blue Badge provision - whilst significantly improving access for the vast majority of passengers, who walk, cycle or take the bus to the station. We look forward to discussing our proposals with the local community and will continue to engage with them as the proposals progress.”

TfL and Taylor Wimpey will be consulting with the local community on their proposals for the site. Members of the public can find out more by calling 020 7234 3338, emailing or visiting
