Ealing Council has given the green light to TfL’s largest residential development to date, which will see the delivery of 853 new homes in Acton
The development will provide 852 new homes in Acton spread over nine buildings and will be a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom properties.
The affordable homes will consist of a combination of homes available at a range of affordable rents, such as discounted market rent and London Affordable Rent, and shared ownership properties.
The masterplan, designed in collaboration with architects HOK and East and engineers Mott MacDonald, covers a 3.6 hectare site and spans from Acton Town station in the north to the level crossing towards Chiswick.
The area around the new homes has been designed to deliver long-term positive change and sustainability for the local community.
As well as looking to incorporate renewable energy systems, such as solar panels, the designs include multiple gardens and new play spaces that the local community as well as residents can enjoy.
The local community will also benefit from improvements to the area that will make it easier for them to travel sustainably too whether by bike or foot.
The vast site will also provide more than 2,300 sqm of commercial space.
‘Hundreds of much-needed homes’
Jonathan Cornelius, head of property development at TfL, said: “It is fantastic news to get the go ahead for our plans at Bollo Lane in Acton Town.
“The proposals have been designed to reflect the area’s heritage and context, such as the Grade II-listed station next to it, and will bring hundreds of much-needed homes to this part of London.
“The scheme has also been designed to benefit the local community with welcoming green spaces, improvements to pedestrian and cycling facilities and new commercial opportunities for local businesses.
“Securing this latest green light at planning committee is an important milestone as it is the largest site on which we have secured planning ourselves.
“We will shortly be approaching the market for a partner as we strive to deliver these homes – including hundreds of new affordable homes – as fast as we can.”
