East to create strategic 'vision' for Acton Town

  • Comment
East has been appointed by Ealing Council to draw up a strategic 'vision and development framework' for Acton Town, west London.

Julian Lewis, East director in charge of the project, told the AJ that the strategic study could also be the cornerstone of a possible new masterplan for the area.

'The study will inform the preparation of the Local Development Framework that sets up the conditions in which a masterplan could be tested,' said Lewis.

The practice, which has recently completed a revamp of the town's square, will work with planning consultant URS and Donaldsons Property to produce a document to guide Acton's future development.

Lewis explained that the team had been tasked 'to consider current and future opportunities for change and redevelopment alongside the need to bring vibrant social improvement.'

'It will involve improving the edges of Acton, its urban structure, and linkages within and at the edges of the town. We will offer proposals for key sites and buildings towards achieving the vision,' he added.

The study, which is expected to take six months to complete, will take into account the regeneration of the down-at-heel South Acton Estate, and will also include proposals for improving the town's industrial areas and its central retail area.
