Planning approved for Barham Park regeneration
01 March 2010
Notting Hill Housing, working in partnership with Countryside Properties and the London Borough of Brent, has received planning consent to redevelop the Barham Park estate over five years starting this summer.
All 214 existing properties will be demolished, in three separate phases, to make way for 335 new sustainable homes in a newly designed neighbourhood.
The homes will range from one-bedroom flats to large family houses with gardens. The scheme also includes retail space, and provision for a neighbourhood office/community space.
The site totals approximately 5.65 acres and is located in the London Borough of Brent between Wembley and Harrow on the Hill.
The first phase will produce 51 maisonettes and flats for affordable rent, 31 flats for shared ownership sale and 37 homes for private sale. These homes will be completed in mid to late-2012.
On completion the whole development should achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4. Heating and hot water will be provided from a district heating scheme; green roofs and other drainage measures, will minimise rainwater run-off and promote biodiversity.
John Hughes, Group Director of Development at Notting Hill Housing said:
"Notting Hill is delighted to be moving forward with the regeneration of Barham Park. We want to give this great local community a neighbourhood that they can be proud of and will work with our partners to deliver new homes of good quality as quickly and cost-effectively as possible."
