A Transport for London backed housing scheme has been given the go ahead by Ealing Council.
The scheme, drawn up by the TfL and Grainger plc Connected Living London partnership and designed by Assael Architecture, will see 460 new one, two, and three bedroom properties built on land next to Southall station. 40 per cent of the new homes will be affordable.
Connected Living London was established last July and has submitted planning applications for four schemes which would collectively deliver 1,200 new homes plus commercial and industrial units. The Southall scheme is the first to receive planning permission.
Ben Tate, a spokesperson for CLL and Head of Property Development at TfL, said: “It’s fantastic to see the first of our sites at Southall get the go-ahead as part of Connected Living London.
“We can now start delivering quality rental homes that the capital desperately needs and help improve the area for the local community.
“Now more than ever, people are looking for homes that are more than just a place to sleep, and with a range of amenity spaces, including outdoor terraces and a residents’ gym, we are confident that these new homes will be a fantastic addition to Southall.”
Helen Gordon, Chief Executive, Grainger plc, said: “We are delighted to secure our first planning resolution for Connected Living London.
“This is an exciting and important milestone for our partnership, which over the coming years is set to make a positive difference for renters and communities across London.
“In Southall we are delivering 460 superbly located homes that locals can afford, all professionally managed by our inhouse team, setting new standards for renting in the area.”
