A mix of 852 one, two and three-bedroom homes are to be built near Bollo Lane in Acton after Ealing Council granted planning permission for Transport for London’s largest housing development to date.
The scheme will see nine new buildings constructed on a 3.6 hectare site spanning from Acton Town station in the north to the level crossing towards Chiswick.
Homes will feature renewable energy systems, including solar panels, and the area will gain multiple gardens and public spaces as well as a widened footpath alongside the west side of Bollo Lane, new crossing points, and a new cycle zone alongside new cycle parking. The site will also provide more than 2,300 sqm of commercial space.
Residents will enjoy excellent public transport links thanks to the proximity of Acton Town, Chiswick Park and South Acton stations.
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.”
