Masterplan to bring more affordable homes

More than 1,500 extra new homes are likely to be built in south Acton, along with new space for businesses, as part of a plan to regenerate the area.

Ealing Council’s south Acton masterplan, which was approved February, aims to transform the area by supporting the growth of new and existing businesses, creating job opportunities, and providing more new homes. The plan also sets out proposed improvements to local amenities, streets, and public spaces, to help the community to thrive.

Details of how to put the plan into action will be developed further in collaboration with landowners and businesses, with the aim of stimulating growth and opportunities for residents. Key elements of the masterplan also include putting restrictions on the density and height allowed for any new buildings, and to make sure developers have to factor-in open spaces and new facilities as part of any development.

What will it include?

Key features of the new plan: 

  • supporting a thriving ecosystem of 92 businesses, providing around 850 jobs
  • nurturing local enterprise by placing industrial and residential areas together, with the right infrastructure to support it
  • more than 5,000 square metres of light industrial floorspace
  • approval for more than 1,500 new homes, of which 40% (600) will be affordable
  • more than £8million in Section 106 funding, secured from developers, which will be used to carry out improvements to local streets

‘A huge boost to the future’

Councillor Shital Manro, the council’s cabinet member for good growth, said: “This is a huge boost to the future of south Acton. Delivering the new affordable homes and jobs the neighbourhood needs is a top priority for us. Once the masterplan project is completed, the area will be transformed into a place that encourages local enterprise. That will be supported with new homes for local people and the new infrastructure they need to flourish as a vibrant and productive community.”
