Planning permission for the next phase of homes at Acton Gardens, the regeneration of the South Acton estate, has been granted.
The plans, by Countryside and L&Q, will deliver 240 new homes, 45% of which will be affordable.
The development of phase three, designed by Maccreanor Lavington and Stitch Studio, will produce the homes in buildings between three and nine storeys in height arranged around landscaped open space.
Richard Cherry, Deputy Chairman of Countryside said: “The first two phases of new homes at the development have been extremely well received and sales have been superb. The urban village concept that drives the vision for Acton Gardens appeals to lots of purchasers, so we are confident that the next phase will be just as successful.”
Jerome Geoghegan, Group Director for Development and Sales at L&Q, said: “At Acton Gardens, L&Q and its partners are creating well-designed homes for people on a range of incomes. This planning consent is a great step forward for this exciting development.”
This comes as the homes built in Phase 2 are launched on the market. Liberty Quarter features luxury apartments and duplex flats designed by Alison Brooks Architects, fronting Bollo Bridge Road.
Overall, Acton Gardens will include over 2,500 new homes. The masterplan includes a new sports ground; a central plaza with a shop, youth centre and other community facilities; and a proposed new bus route and street network to link the development to the surrounding area.
The new homes will be built to achieve a minimum Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4. Non-domestic buildings are aspiring to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’.
