How Assael’s scheme will look when built

Assael Architecture has been given the green light for a 460-home scheme next to Southall station in west London.

The five-block development, for developer Connected Living London, was given the all-clear by planners at Ealing council on Wednesday.

Set for a 1.16-acre railway-side site currently being used for storage by Crossrail, it is the first green light for the developer which is a partnership between Transport for London and property developer Grainger.

The scheme includes a 40% share of affordable housing, a resident’s gym, green energy installations such as heat pumps and solar panels and two roof terraces with views over Southall Park.

It is the first of four schemes submitted for planning by CLL to have been given the go ahead.

The others are a 162-home scheme designed by Maccreanor Lavington for a site next to Arnos Grove station, a 139-home scheme in Lambeth designed by Hawkins Brown which will also provide 2,700sq m of workspace, and a 479 home over-station development at Nine Elms Tube station, also designed by Assael Architecture. Each scheme will be 40% affordable.

CLL said it has plans for a total of 3,000 homes in London, with a fifth scheme at Cockfosters due to be lodged with planners soon which the developer says will provide hundreds of new homes.
