LB Ealing has stopped its procurement of a developer partner for the regeneration of the Copley Close estate, a process which began in 2009 for the 637 home estate in Hanwell.
The council’s cabinet has decided to look at an “alternative option” for regeneration at the site as most recent plans had “not been viable”, reports the Ealing Gazette.
Hitesh Taylor, cabinet member for housing at Ealing said: “Two developers put forward proposals for the Copley Close estate, but the plans were unacceptable because they did not address what people on the estate have told us they want. Although we recognise the site presents some challenges, we remain committed to the principles of regeneration and need to make sure that we get it right. Regeneration is more than just improving the homes. It is also about wider aims to tackle the poor environment, reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and provide opportunities for young people.”
