Acton Gardens Masterplan, London
Countryside and L&Q are JV partners in Acton Gardens LLP, which is bringing forward an ambitious programme to re-develop the South Acton Estate.
In 2018, the JV submitted a revised masterplan to increase the total number of residential units from 2,440 to 3,300.
The JV needed to secure approval for the revised masterplan and a detailed permission for the next phase in the sequence of the on-going regeneration programme within a very tight timescale to meet its re-housing commitments to existing residents. The regeneration programme faces significant challenges resulting from the costs of decanting existing residents, with a commitment to ‘no second moves’.
We worked with the applicants, the Council’s advisors and the GLA to secure agreement on the viability of the scheme and its ability to meet emerging London Plan policy on the re-provision of existing social rented housing.
