Mount Anvil & Catalyst’s Friary Park transformation approved


Mount Anvil and Catalyst have received planning permission for the transformation of Acton’s Friary Park estate, which will deliver 990 new homes

Mount Anvil’s 990-home scheme at Friary Park has received a resolution to grant planning from Ealing Council’s planning committee.

The partnership will deliver mixed-tenure homes to transform the estate. The scheme plans to deliver 45% affordable housing and to increase the number of rented homes on the site to 265, including 28 London affordable rent homes.

The Mount Anvil and Catalyst joint venture worked with Friary Park residents to ensure local voices were at the heart of key decisions. The development will provide both existing residents and the new community with the homes and facilities that they need.

Philip Jenkins, group development director at Catalyst, said: “We’d like to thank our customers and everyone else that has been involved in the consultation for these exciting new proposals for Friary Park since 2014.

“We are eager and now ready to bring forward a new estate that the whole community can live in, play in, and enjoy for years to come.”

Cecilia Aridegbe, resident and chair of the Residents Steering Group, said: “We are really happy with the councillors’ decision. Catalyst and Mount Anvil have ensured our views are heard and we feel they have really listened to us.

“The regeneration will deliver real benefits to the residents of Friary Park.”

The Friary Park estate is less than a five-minute’ walk from the Acton Main Line station, where Crossrail is due to open in 2021. The transformation of the estate will offer existing residents larger, better quality homes, and create over 1000 sq metres of new retail and commercial space.

The plans will also see new green spaces on the estate, with the creation of new podium gardens, play trails and a multi-use games area.
