Brent Council has granted planning permission for a 454-home development by Wembley Park London Underground station.

The development will be delivered by Transport for London (TfL) and Barratt London as a joint venture.

Emma Hatch, senior property development manager at TfL, said: “We are thrilled to get the go-ahead for our development at Wembley, which will deliver hundreds of new homes as well as a new retail opportunity and improvements for the local community.”

Of the 454 homes, 40 per cent have been designated as affordable homes, offered as shared ownership and London Affordable Rent. They will be a mixture of studio, one, two and three-bedroom properties.

The scheme, which will be built on a 1.6-acre site, also comprises a retail unit, improvements to the public realm and operation space for TfL. The roofs will be green and biodiverse, trees and hedges will be planted, and bird boxes and bee bricks will be installed. Solar panels and air source heat pumps are also part of the scheme.

With the exception of blue badge parking, the scheme will be car-free. Cycle storage will be provided.

Jim Wood, London operations managing director at Barratt London, said: “This is an exciting project for us and we are particularly pleased to be able to deliver such a high percentage of much needed affordable homes for the borough, alongside retail and train crew accommodation.”
