We asked David Simmonds MP to ask TfL for a comment on the likely timescale before they might come back with revised proposals to redevelop Station Approach and the station car park. This was their response to him:
“Following on from our last period of public engagement in March 2019, we have reassessed our options for redeveloping our land at Northwood. Whilst we still believe some form of development would be beneficial in the long-term, we have indeed paused work on redevelopment and are instead focused on improving the existing retail estate.
“In regards to the timeframe, now that we have paused the development on the site, we have agreed that we can lease the vacant shops with five-year leases, helping to provide more certainty for our tenants on the site.”
