TfL gets go ahead for 850 new affordable homes

Transport for London has announced that it has received the go-ahead from Ealing Council to build 852 new homes in the area as part of TfL’s Housing Programme.

The homes will be spread over nine buildings and will be a mixture of one, two, and three-bedroom properties, suited to all types of households, including first time buyers, families, and downsizers.

The location of the homes means they are a great opportunity for commuters, due to their proximity to Acton Town, Chiswick Park, and South Acton stations meaning new residents will have easy links to central London with the Piccadilly, District, and London Overground lines.

The wider community will also benefit from the buildings with wider footpaths being put in place in the surrounding areas as well as greater crossing points for pedestrians.

TfL plans to build approximately 10,000 affordable homes in London, with 1,500 already having work started to build them.

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.”

Webinar: Driving sustainability & value through technology end-of-life

End-of-life is often overlooked yet is equally as important to a digital strategy, but what happens to end-of-life technology? What is the impact on the environment, net zero targets? What is the financial impact, is value for money for the taxpayer simply discarded and destroyed along with the technology?
 

Join us on 13 September between 2:00pm-2:45pm where we look to address the lifecycle of a digital strategy with a focus on end-of-life using examples, achieving efficiency, increased sustainability and delivering cost savings.
