HTA and Alison Brooks Architects are part of a team picked to regenerate a rundown housing estate in west London.

The £560 million regeneration of the South Acton estate in Ealing will include a range of housing types and tenures ranging from one-bedroom apartments to five-bedroom family homes.

Ealing Council wants to reconnect the estate to the rest of the area with green spaces, parks and gardens and around 2,000 new homes.

HTA has been appointed masterplanner and lead architect with Alison Brookes as ‘character area architect’.

The scheme is being developed by Countryside Properties and London & Quadrant.

  • As a local resident I have attended two public presentations of the proposals for this scheme under development. While the regeneration is welcome, the proposals are fundamentally flawed. Proposed density is virtually double the existing which will add impossible pressure to an area already suffering from recent high rise/high density development. Proposed traffic/road layouts create additional through routes/rat runs which will have a serious impact on adjacent roads which are already hopelessly overloaded. In general these proposals will have a catastrophic effect on the local community, despite the council's good intentions. These views have been relayed to the council - a full and thorough reconsideration of the brief is required!

  • Er.. what exhibitions are you talking about? I'm also a local resident and I haven't been aware of any presentations recently.

  • Revamp? Regenerate? Sounds more like a total demolition and development job to me. Could we please be a bit clearer in our choice of words? Something strangely similar - but with quite wretched architecture - is being proposed at Wornington Green, North Kensington, and similarly threatens to destroy everything that is good and replace with high density banalities. What about the people and their community? This kind of development does nothing whatever to improve lives.
