Planning granted for 700-home scheme

Outline planning permission has been granted for a 706-home development in west London.

Under the £136 million scheme, a total of 464 homes on the Green Man Lane estate in Ealing will be demolished and replaced by 706 new flats and houses.

Planners also gave the estate’s regeneration team, which includes housing association A2 Dominion and developer Rydon, detailed permission for phase one of the development, which will provide 154 homes.

The development will provide homes for social rent, shared ownership and outright sale.

It will also include a community cafe, offices, and a children’s play area.

The Homes and Communities Agency has granted £13 million towards the social housing element of the scheme.

Nicholas Yeeles, executive director at A2 Dominion, said: ‘Our aim is to create a place where people feel proud and safe to be, and we feel confident that the regeneration will achieve this.’
