The Mayor of London and Brent Council have approved plans for the phased demolition and redevelopment of Barham Park Estate.
Construction will start this summer and is estimated to take five years to complete. Phase one will build 51 maisonettes and flats for affordable rent, 31 flats for shared ownership and 37 homes for private sale.
Barham Park Estate will be redeveloped by Notting Hill Housing and Countryside Properties. They will demolish 214 existing properties to make way for 335 new homes – 267 on the estate and 68 just outside on the Harrow Road. Homes will range from one bedroom flats to large family houses with gardens. The scheme will also include retail space and a community centre.
Sustainability is a key theme of design proposals and the development will feature green roofs. These will provide a range of benefits including absorption of rainwater, provision of insulation and a habitat for wildlife.
Councillor Paul Lorber, Leader of Brent Council said: “I am excited we are now one step closer to the regeneration of Barham Park Estate. These new homes will not just improve resident’s quality of lives and the look of the area; it will also benefit the environment by providing sustainable solutions.”
