The Council says it wants "visionary developers" to respond to the challenges of a major housing-led regeneration project. The successful developer will provide new high-quality affordable and private homes in a "sustainable and vibrant neighbourhood".
The 4.34ha Rectory Park Estate, owned freehold by the Council, currently consists of 270 Local Authority owned homes, mainly rented, and it is still substantially a mono tenure area. Given Rectory Park itself is immediately adjacent, there is potential for the Estate to be re-invented as a prosperous and vibrant area.
The Council say there may be some potential to expand housing regeneration on a nearby site that currently contains sheltered housing, and on which a consultation is ongoing. The development may include works in relation to public realm, commercial and retail use, and other public facilities.

This follows hard on the heels of the OJEU notice for another Ealing estate, Copley Close.
