Ealing Council has signed off on a plan to build nearly 200 homes as part of a £155 million estate regeneration scheme.
The build will focus on the West of the borough, and will see the creation of 187 new homes at a time when the government has been under pressure to build affordable housing.
In July the government announced a £220 million investment into affordable housing in Britain to push the build of up to 14,000 new homes to cope with a growing population, but work won’t start until 2015.
The scheme by Ealing Council, contracted to A2Dominion and Rydon, will see phase two of the Green Man Lane development, designed by Conran & Partners, put into full swing.
David Price, Regeneration Director at A2Dominion said: “This planning consent signals a new major milestone in the development of the Green Man Lane estate.
“With the first phase nearing completion, the regeneration project is already beginning to transform this run-down 1970’s estate and we look forward to progressing with this exciting next stage to deliver even more high quality homes.”
The Green Man Lane project is set to be completed in 2016, with nearly 200 homes ready for occupants in early 2014 as phase one nears completion.
