As Ealing Council approves phase 4 of the estate regeneration scheme, Housing Industry Leaders looks at how regeneration is essential to levelling up and the wider opportunities it brings for housing in the UK.
Ealing Council has granted the 396-home final stage of a west London estate regeneration scheme planning permission. Such a large-scale project offers hope for other cities across the UK as the housebuilding agenda continues to grow.
The development, coming through a joint venture of Real Places and housing association A2 Dominion has officially been granted permission to demolish existing buildings on the Green Man Lane estate to make way for nearly 400 homes. Some will be up to 16 storeys in height, some as low as five. Below is how the latest phase of the Green Man Lane estate regeneration scheme will look
Now entering its final phase, once completed, a total of 869 homes will have been built, replacing 464 homes that were previously there. With a focus on affordability, 183 will be assigned for affordable tenures. Breaking this down further, they will comprise 129 affordable rent and 54 for shared ownership.
Ensuring new housing also comes with new community living spaces; the regeneration project has allocated 775sq m of community floor space and a children’s centre.
Paul Nicholls, chief executive of Real Places, said: “It is a joy to see this significant scheme in Ealing, west London, move closer towards completion, creating a vibrant and safe community for all its residents.”
