St George have submitted plans for the redevelopment of Northfields Industrial Estate in Alperton as 2900 homes.
The plans involve the demolition of the existing buildings and their replacement with new workspace, retail premises, restaurants, a community centre, public open space and 2,900 new homes on the twenty-one acre site, located just off the A406 North Circular Road, by the Ace Café.
Phase one of the scheme is a detailed application and would see the Grand Union Canal-side of the site developed first, with new homes and improvements proposed to the public realm along the waterside.
The rest of the site extending to Beresford Avenue and the River Brent would be developed in later stages and outline permission is sought for this.
Buildings would rise up to 29 storeys in height, on the brownfield site which is ten minutes from Alperton and five minutes from Stonebridge London underground stations.
Cllr Shama Tatler, Brent Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Skills and Growth, said: “This is a very important application which will be closely examined by the council’s planning department before it goes before a public planning committee meeting later in the year for a final decision.”
A consultation is open until 31 March 2018.
