Moren Gregory wins go-ahead for west London housing scheme - images

  • Comment
Moren Gregory has been given the green light for this £4 million housing scheme in Alperton, west London.

The development is the practice's second major project in Ealing Road, which lies in the heart of one of Brent's Major Opportunity Sites - a 'priority' area earmarked for huge regeneration.

Backed by Newlight Properties, the 1,850m 2project will create 37 new apartments, 15 of which are being classed as affordable homes.

The development will be split into two separate blocks wrapped around an internal, landscaped courtyard.

Practice director Andrew Gregory said: 'We have developed an important understanding of the area, its community and its needs and have responded by creating a bold and lively design to match its vibrancy and energy.'

Neil McClellan, planner from Brent City Council added: 'This is an important mixed-use regeneration scheme in a neglected part of central Alperton.

'The scheme has been cleverly designed to protect the amenity of existing residents and will not impact on them in terms of loss of light, increased sense of enclosure or loss of outlook.'

Work on site is expected to start early next year.

Meanwhile the firm has also just submitted plans for a new 'Alperton Village' overlooking the nearby Grand Union canal. The development will provide 186 new homes and, it is hoped, will create a 'vibrant waterfront precinct.'
