Green light for Brentford Waterside masterplan

  • Comment

Proposals by AHMM, Glenn Howells Architects and Maccreanor Lavington to regenerate part of west London have won planning permission.

The Brentford Waterside development will cover a 4.79ha site between the suburb’s High Street and the River Brent and include up to 876 new homes, as well as new community, retail and business space.

Hounslow Council’s approval gives outline permission for the whole scheme and detailed consent for a first phase that includes residential blocks of up to 10 storeys.

The Waterside scheme, which is being developed by Ballymore Group, will also include the retention of some of the area’s industrial heritage structures, such as warehouse buildings, as well as the creation of new mooring facilities at Workhouse Dock.

Glenn Howells Architects’ contribution is a 66-home, 10-storey block of waterside apartments, with retail space at ground-floor level.

Maccreanor Lavington has created the five-to-seven storey blocks that face Brentford High Street and contain a mix of commercial space with upper-floor residential.

AHMM’s contribution to the first phase aims to anchor the new town square and Workhouse Dock with a mix of residential, leisure and retail in blocks of up to seven storeys.

Hounslow Council leader Steve Curran said the development would ‘breathe new life’ into Brentford High Street and provide much-needed affordable homes.

‘These ambitious plans will bolster Brentford’s burgeoning reputation as west London’s boom-town and will be seen as the pinnacle of riverside retail therapy for thousands of shoppers and leisure seekers,’ he said.
