Childs Hill Labour councillors have welcomed Barnet Council’s action on housing affordability, after research revealed that the ward is one of the most expensive places to buy in Barnet.

Figures from property website Zoopla showed the average property price to be £885,000 in Childs Hill, the second most expensive ward in the borough, only behind Garden Suburb.

Childs Hill councillor Nigel Young said: “House prices in Childs Hill are out of control. It’s great to see Barnet’s Labour council take action on affordability across the borough, whether it’s the upcoming introduction of a private renters charter, or securing 1,000 new council homes by 2026.”
