Comment on this story on the forum

Opponents of the recently approved scheme to redevelop the Friary Park Estate in Acton are claiming the developer and Ealing Council misled them over the real size of the project.

The 1980s estate next to Acton Mainline station currently consists of 225 social rented homes described by planning consultants Barton Willmore as ‘undersized’, in a site that ‘lacks permeability, encourages anti-social behaviour and has ‘ inadequate green space.’

It’s proposd that all the current buildings on the Friary Park Estate and its surrounding roads will be demolished, and replaced with new homes of mixed type. The scheme has been worked on since 2014 and the plans are expected to deliver 372 ‘affordable’ homes and 618 for private sale.

Planning permission was granted to Catalyst to demolish the estate replacing the homes with around 930 new ones in tower blocks.

Catalyst say, ”Our proposals will dramatically improve the housing conditions on the estate by providing high quality new homes. There will be an increased number of family-sized homes for social rent to meet the needs of the families currently living on the estate.”

However, in the documentation submitted by the developer as part of their application and the associated consultation process, no images were provided which gave an indication of the true scale of the development.This has been a feature of many of the developments in the area including the Council’s own scheme in central Ealing and residents who are uncomfortable with the height of buildings being proposed across the borough are producing red block CGIs themselves in an attempt to make clear what the impact will be.
