The London Borough of Ealing Council has granted outline planning permission for ongoing regeneration of the borough’s largest housing estate. The application includes 1,950 new homes.

Redevelopment of Acton Gardens, formerly the South Acton Estate, began in 2012. This application for the undeveloped areas takes the total number of homes to be delivered to 3,300.

The estate includes Harlech Tower, which was famous as the fictional Nelson Mandela House, home to the Trotter family in the BBC TV comedy series Only Fools and Horses…

The application also includes a detailed application for the next 200 homes to be built, due to be constructed this year. Retail, commercial, and community and healthcare floor space will be provided. A reconfigured bus route will serve the site, and new parks, open spaces and increased allotments are to be established.

Planning consultancy Barton Willmore prepared and submitted the application on behalf of Acton Gardens LLP, a joint venture between Countryside Properties and London & Quadrant Housing, working with the borough council.

Like-for-like re-provision of all social rent homes is included in the application, as well as an increase in the provision of shared ownership properties.

Mark Ludlow from Acton Gardens LLP added: “London’s housing needs have changed considerably since the original masterplan was conceived, so this revised masterplan will deliver a scheme that more closely matches the community’s needs and desires."
