Northfields Industrial Estate to be transformed into 2,900 new homes

Brent Council have approved plans to transform an industrial estate into almost 3,000 new homes and a host of community amenities.

The proposals to redevelop Northfields Industrial Estate, in Alperton, were give the green light at a planning committee meeting last night (Thursday 19 July).

The 21-acre site, close to the North Circular Road, will be transformed to accommodate 2,900 new homes, of which 35 per cent will be affordable.

There will also be work and retail spaces, a community centre and health clinic, a children’s nursery and open space, and several restaurants. The ambitious project will be carried out in phases, with a completion date set for 2038.

Cllr Shama Tatler, responsible for planning and regeneration at Brent Council, said: “This scheme will breathe new life into a worn-out and redundant industrial estate and transform the area between Alperton and Stonebridge while bringing new homes, jobs, and improvements to the public realm and local transport networks.

“It’s brilliant news for those looking to start-up a business or those looking for work, not to mention it being fantastic news for those needing a place to live, with nearly three thousand new homes to be built, over a thousand of which will be affordable.

“It’s a great scheme and one that through the extensive consultation work that the applicant has undertaken, is one that carries the support of local residents, businesses, politicians and now, the council’s planning committee.”
