ISIS Waterside Regeneration has been granted planning permission for the regeneration of Brentford Lock West, which they hope will transform the land surrounding the historic waterways of the Grand Union Canal in Brentford, West London.
The plans aim to turn the derelict buildings and vacant land into a thriving waterside community which will encompass residential, commercial and leisure use.
The scheme includes the development of up to 520 new homes and 7,000 square metres of commercial space. ISIS say this will help create around 300 new jobs.
They say central to their scheme are a series of “high quality public areas which will embrace the water’s edge”. The plans also include the refurbishment of the bus depot located on site and the creation of streets which will connect the development with the water as well as a new bridge linking the site to the parkland across the canal.
Katie Sully, development director at ISIS says: “We aim to connect this new neighbourhood with the waterside and strengthen the link between the canal and the town centre.”
ISIS will now enter the detailed design stage of the planning process for Brentford Lock West and it is expected that construction work will begin on site autumn 2012.
