Network Homes to build new affordable homes in Perivale
Award winning housing association Network Homes has secured planning permission for a new development of much needed new homes in Perivale with over half being affordable.
The regeneration of a warehouse site in Bilton Road will see the transformation of brownfield land into 105 stylish one, two and three bedroom apartments after Ealing Council gave the green light.
Seventeen homes will be rented at London Affordable Rent, a rate set by the Greater London Authority (GLA) and comparable to social rent. While ten will be available for London Living Rent, a Mayor of London initiative where rents are based on a third of average household incomes giving Londoners the chance to save for a deposit to buy a shared ownership home. Twenty eight apartments will be for shared ownership which offers an affordable way for people looking to own their own home.
The remaining properties will be for private sale.
The homes will be close to nearby shops and amenities and within 10 to 15 minutes walk of Alperton and Perivale tube stations.
We’re really pleased to be able to proceed with this high quality development which will provide some much need affordable homes for people in Ealing. This is another significant investment in the borough building on our regeneration projects at Rectory Park in Northolt and in the Southall housing zone which will see us deliver more homes for people across Ealing.David Gooch, Network Homes Executive Director for Development
Councillor Peter Mason, Ealing Council’s lead member for housing, planning and transformation, said: “London is increasingly unaffordable and unequal, and the housing crisis is often the symptom of that inequality which hits people hardest. Many residents face a real struggle to afford to live in the areas they have grown up in. The development in Bilton Road is very welcome and will contribute to our commitment to create 2,500 genuinely affordable homes that are modern, high quality and well within means of people on low and average incomes in our borough.”
