HTA, Alison Brooks Architects and AECOM have bagged the £560 million scheme to regenerate Ealing’s largest housing estate, South Acton

The practices are part of the Countryside Properties and L&Q team, selected by the London Borough of Ealing to create almost 2,000 new homes on the 16ha site and to link it to the wider neighbourhood.

Described as an ‘urban village’, the project focuses on delivering family homes, which range in scale from to four-bedroom apartments and maisonettes to four- and five-bedroom houses.

Richard Cherry, deputy chairman of Countryside Properties, said: ‘Our over-arching vision is to transform the South Acton Estate into a highly sought after, sustainable, residential community that all residents are proud to live in.

’It is a genuinely unique opportunity to not only regenerate one of London’s largest housing estates, but to use the physical, social, and economic regeneration as a catalyst for improving the quality of life across a wider area.’

After consultation with residents, a masterplan is expected to be completed during the summer and a planning application submitted later this year (2010).
