This is a very controversial development for locals - I don’t live there myself but know people who do. Probably an element of NIMBYism but it is being built in what is currently a very well used station car park, and it’s still a lot of homes for a small congested site.

The environs around Finchley Central station are awful at present so I think development will have a positive visual impact, especially if they can create a town square on Ballards Lane.

The general London wide plan to rid many tube stations of their car parks is controversial however. I do think some parking provision should be available in outer London, as many older people rely on them
and busses don’t penetrate everywhere. I can see the other side of the argument as well.

I also wonder if London still needs so many new homes- is the city’s population really still growing with Brexit and the widely reported exodus of the young out of the city?

The vast majority of people using car parks at tube stations in outer London are travelling in from outside London; that's why there is a push to remove them. Plus it's one of the ways TfL are over-coming their budget issues.
