Hounslow Council’s Cabinet has agreed on the business plan for the new homes at Charlton House and Albany House in Brentford, which is part of the Council’s House ambitious housebuilding programme.
The decision, which took place at Hounslow Council’s Cabinet meeting Tuesday, 21 February, will make way for 209 new flats and include five apartment blocks ranging between one and eight storeys high.
The new development will be 100 per cent affordable and existing residents can live in a new building within the borough or live somewhere else and return to the estate once the homes have been completed.
Councillor Tom Bruce, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Development at Hounslow Council, said:
“The regeneration of this estate is a top priority for Hounslow Council, and we have a robust strategy to make the regeneration of this estate reality.
“Eye-watering inflation and rising construction costs do mean we face challenges in delivering this project. However, we remain committed to making this happen and ensuring we deliver affordable homes for Hounslow residents.”
Residents overwhelmingly backed the regeneration in 2021, with 87 per cent voting in favour of the proposals during the resident ballot. To keep the disruption to a minimum and keep the community together for as long as possible, residents will be moved out as close to the start of the building works as possible, expected to be in Winter 2023.
