Plans approved by Committee

Ealing Council’s Planning Committee has approved the updated plans for the 1,228-home Friary Park estate regeneration.

The proposals will deliver more new affordable homes in London than the previously permitted scheme, which was given planning approval in 2019. Friary Park regeneration is the first partnership between Mount Anvil and Catalyst.

The updated development will deliver 238 additional homes, increasing the overall total from 990 to 1,228 homes. Of the additional homes, 50% will be affordable (by habitable rooms).

Across the whole scheme, 455 homes (46% by habitable rooms) will be affordable with 315 of these homes will be social rent and London affordable rent, 140 will be intermediate tenure, a split of 74% low-cost rent and 26% intermediate.

The first affordable homes in the masterplan are due to complete in early 2023 with private for sale homes will be delivered in Spring 2024.


Richard Smith, Regional Managing Director for London at Catalyst, commented: “Ealing Council’s endorsement of our plans is great news for Acton. Like many areas of the country, demand for new homes is high and our plans for Friary Park will provide affordable solutions for many local people while also supporting local businesses. With our partners at Mount Anvil, we’ve listened to the community, and have made changes to our proposals to deliver more homes and enhance the neighbourhood for everybody to enjoy. We’re pleased that this superbly located scheme, just a short walk from the Elizabeth Line, will connect people both within the neighbourhood and beyond”

Marcus Bate, Partnerships and Community director at Mount Anvil, said: “We are truly excited to bring forward this scheme with our partners at Catalyst. We have worked very hard to listen to Friary Park residents to create a place that will be a huge asset for the local area. Whether you are looking for a fantastic place to call home, a green space to socialise with friends in, or a creative affordable space to work from, our proposals will provide something special as part of an outstanding healthy working community at Friary Park.”
