The regeneration of Rectory Park began in 2011 after extensive consultation with residents and Network secured GLA funding. Working closely in partnership with the London Borough of Ealing to deliver the regeneration of this area, the funding has helped Network provide new affordable homes to existing tenants and leaseholders much sooner than previously planned.
Vicky Savage, Executive Development Director, Network Housing Group, said: “This is great news. I know residents have been crucial to this project and I would like to thank the estate’s residents for working so closely with the council and Network Group to help make this project such a success.”
In total Network will now be building a total of 449 new homes on Rectory Park, an increase of 179 homes from the 270 properties that originally existed there. The first 160 new homes have completed, 54 of them for social rent and 106 for affordable home ownership, and these affordable homes have generated strong demand locally.
Work on the new project, with its development partner Hill Partnerships, will now embark on building phases three to four. This will deliver a further 289 new homes.
Khozema Khedapa, Chair of the Rectory Park Residents Association, said: "It is a landmark occasion for all parties involved to see through the hard work and effort put in to complete this fantastic regeneration project. The residents along with the Network Stadium and Ealing council are incredibly proud to be a part of this and look forward to the speedy completion of the remaining phases."
Work on the latest phases is estimated to start between February and April this year and will provide a brand new community centre for the area as well as 97 homes for social rent, 68 for affordable home ownership and 124 for private sale.
