Latimer Developments by Clarion Housing Group and Redington Capital has submitted proposals to provide a new 1.2-acre public open space as part of a development that would save Twyford Abbey, one of Ealing’s most historic buildings, and deliver 326 homes within a new low-rise garden community.

The first application was for listed building consent to make external alterations, internal alterations, and rooftop repairs to Twyford Abbey to facilitate the conversion into self-contained flats and a resident’s lounge.

The second application was for the development of 326 self-contained residential units comprising a phased construction of seven blocks of flats (ranging from two to six-storeys), two two-storey detached dwellinghouses (following demolition of existing gatehouse) and a terrace of two-storey dwellinghouses in the grounds of Twyford Abbey.

The conversion of Twyford Abbey (Grade II Listed) into flats and provision of residents’ lounge. The demolition of the workshop attached to the Grade II listed walled garden and replacement with a single-storey dwelling house.

Facilitated by repair, refurbishment, infill and rooftop extensions, the demolition of post-war extensions and other pre-war structures within the grounds, excluding the cottage, retention and restoration of the Grade II listed walled garden and attached cottage. The cottage restoration will provide ancillary facilities, management accommodation and resident facilities.

Comprehensive landscaping works, including the removal and works to trees and groups of trees protected by a Tree Preservation Order to provide a publicly accessible open space. The plan includes the provision of a gated cycle and pedestrian access onto the North Circular (A406) and new access onto Twyford Abbey Road.

The proposals gained approval October 19 2022.
