Ealing borough’s planning committee has given approval to another phase of the £800 million redevelopment of the South Acton estate.

Countryside Properties has been given permission to proceed with phase 7.2 of the Acton Gardens scheme and build 185 new flats with work starting later this year.

The new blocks will be built where Frampton Court, 98-100B Avenue Road, Cheltenham Place blocks 6 and 8 and Belgrave Close currently stand.

Half of these will be classed as affordable on a habitable room basis and 44 will be ‘Active Living’ units which are designed for older residents and can be adapted for accessibility. Residents in existing sheltered accommodation will be moved into buildings in the new phase on completion which is expected to be in 2024.

There will be a courtyard garden at the centre of the development.

When all the phases of the project are complete there will be 3,463 new housing units on the 52-acre site, half of which are classed as affordable. The council says equivalent accommodation was offered to social housing tenants on the old site.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
