Following our very positive experience working with Barratt London on Blackhorse View in Waltham Forest, we look forward to engaging with people in Brent and hearing their feedback on our plans to help tackle the housing crisis and provide improvements for the local community.'

Matt Calladine, Regional Land and Development Director, Barratt London: 'The site at Wembley Park station is an important development site in the context of the wider Wembley regeneration area. We are looking forward to working closely with TfL, the London Borough of Brent and local stakeholders to ensure the delivery of high-quality homes and mixed-use accommodation, that will be a fantastic enhancement to the local area.'

Brent Council has approved TfL and Barratt London’s proposals to deliver new homes next to Wembley Park underground station.

The proposals include a new flexible retail unit, public realm enhancements to help enliven the area and new operational space for TfL.

A joint venture between the TfL and Barratt London will build 454 new homes, including 40% affordable housing, a retail unit, improvements to the public realm, which will help to transform the local area, and new operational space for TfL.

The scheme, which covers a 1.6-acre site, has been designed by TateHindle architects and will be delivered across five buildings. The new homes will be a mixture of studio, one, two and three-bedroom properties, suited to all types of households, including first time buyers, families and downsizers.

The affordable homes will be offered as a combination of intermediate housing, such as shared ownership, and London Affordable Rent.

Emma Hatch, Senior Property Development Manager at TfL, commented: 'We are thrilled to get the go-ahead for our development at Wembley, which will deliver hundreds of new homes as well as a new retail opportunity and improvements for the local community.

'This is the second project with Barratt London and builds on our track record for delivering much-needed new homes in the capital. Our first homes at Blackhorse View in Waltham Forest started selling earlier this year, showing our developments have been designed thoughtfully with both the community and residents in mind.'

Jim Wood, London Operations Managing Director at Barratt London, added: 'We are delighted with the London Borough of Brent's decision to provide resolution to grant planning permission for Wembley Park.

'This is an exciting project for us and we are particularly pleased to be able to deliver such a high percentage of much needed affordable homes for the borough, alongside retail and train crew accommodation.

'It is a great privilege to be delivering this development in partnership with Transport for London, and we are looking forward to starting work onsite for the project in 2021.'
