hgh Achieves Green Light for Charity Independent Living Scheme


Permission has been granted for community accommodation for charity Jewish Blind and Disabled (JBD) in a new development in Mill Hill East, North London.


hgh advised client JBD on the new £10M scheme, for 30 independent living units in the London Borough of Barnet, designed to meet the needs of residents with physical disabilities or vision impairment, including communal facilities.


  • This is the 3rd scheme on which hgh has helped to secure planning permission for JBD;
  • Low carbon energy has been a key part of the scheme’s design, including solar power and living roofs;
  • The Mill Hill East development adds to JBD’s 7 existing properties, supporting over 360 tenants ranging from 30-somethings to a 105-year-old;
  • The new scheme is to be named ‘Ephraim Court’ in memory of the Ephraim 1998 Trust’s founders, brothers Menashi (Morris) and Heskel (Harry) Ephraim. 


Lisa Wimborne, Chief Executive, Jewish Blind and Disabled said:

”We are committed to ensuring we can meet the needs of current and future people living in our community with either physical disabilities or visual impairment. hgh has provided excellent advice throughout the planning application process and beyond.”


Richard Henley, Executive Director, hgh Consulting said:

”We’re delighted to see the plans for this much-needed development take shape and move forward, to help members of the community with physical disabilities and visual impairment to live independently in the Borough.”
