Free Gardening Kits For Residents
Countryside teamed up with charity and social enterprise Cultivate London to donate free gardening kits to residents of the Acton Gardens development.
The project was open to all residents, who were able to sign up online and received pots, seeds, compost and hemp sacks. Around 90 residents have now picked up their gardening starter kits and also received advice from Cultivate London on how to best care for their new plants.
The project was funded by the Countryside Communities Fund, which has been set up to support local charities and groups, food banks and others providing essential local services in locations where Countryside operates across the country. Since launching the £1m fund in April, it has contributed over £750,000 across the country.
Daniel King, Managing Director, Partnerships West London & Thames Valley, Countryside, commented: “Recent months have been extremely challenging for many, and so we wanted to give our residents a small boost by helping them spruce up their balconies and gardens. This project is part of our commitment to healthy living at Acton Gardens, where we’re creating a total of 4.69 hectares of green, open space, as well as retaining mature trees across the development. Having worked with Cultivate London throughout the regeneration, we’re delighted to continue this partnership and we can’t wait to see the gardens and balconies in bloom later this year.”
Auberon Bayley, General Manager of Cultivate London, added: “I hope that a silver lining from the recent threat to our health, economy and restrictions to our lives is that we have seen the potential for plants to enhance our living space. What we wanted to do with the growing packs was give people a simple selection that can get you started on a windowsill, balcony or garden. For those looking to stay active and develop new skills, volunteering opportunities are available at Cultivate London, while for those who have already grown green fingers over lockdown the RHS’s Big Soup Share community initiative may be something to get stuck into.
Countryside has worked with Cultivate London throughout the Acton Gardens regeneration, initially helping the urban farm to relocate to an improved site at Acton Gardens, and also contributing towards the costs for new materials, which helped them grow their business and in turn supply the majority of the trees and plants to Acton Gardens.

New 3-bedroom show home launched 12th November 2016!
If you are looking to live the lifestyle of the New York without leaving London, buyers should consider West Park Terrace, the new phase at the Acton Gardens development in W3 by Countryside and L&Q.
The striking design of the new apartments emulates the post-modern influences of the contemporary apartment blocks found stateside, overlooking traditional, tree-lined streets and a communal park square.
Apartments in New York City house everyone from young professionals to families, and West Park Terrace’s one, two and three bedroom apartments, überhaus apartments and überhaus penthouses offer similar appeal for all buyer types. Offering a contemporary collection of 54 homes, residents at Acton Gardens can enjoy the best of city living through superb transport connections, but with a sense of escapism thanks to residential streets and plenty of green open spaces.
Designed by PCKO Architects, West Park Terrace’s striking design aims to integrate the homes ranging over nine storeys and three blocks with neighbouring West Park, which will be complete in summer 2017. Additionally, all residents of West Park Quarter will have access to the communal courtyard and easy access to the new West Park, which will include a children’s playground.
Andrew Loveday, Sales Director at Countryside comments: “City living, be it London or New York, has some exciting advantages, with world-class shopping and dining, stunning architecture and first-rate entertainment and leisure amenities. West Park Terrace, our latest phase of apartments at Acton Gardens, boasts all of this on the doorstep while at the same time becoming a vibrant new urban quarter itself, taking influence from the structural design of New York City’s residential buildings. The hustle and bustle of the capital feels a million miles away in the peaceful enclave of West London, but with the West End just 33 minutes away – who needs Broadway?”
Acton Gardens is transforming the former 52 acre South Acton Estate into a new urban village. It is reconnecting the estate to the wider neighbourhood, with more than 2,500 new homes set within traditional tree-lined streets, and is increasingly providing a sense of place and community for residents.
In a nod to the traditional appeal of New York City’s parks and squares, the outdoor spaces are designed to create social, lively places for people to relax and enjoy, where pedestrians have priority and community interaction is encouraged. Green open space plays a vital role at Acton Gardens, with tree lined streets designed around a series of parks, squares and communal gardens, featuring extensive landscaping, play areas and allotments. The plans also include a proposed new bus route and street network linking with the surrounding area, as well as a car club for residents’ use.
With excellent transport connections, Acton Gardens is located within a short walk of Acton Town underground station providing Piccadilly and District Line services into the West End and the City. It is also close to Acton main line station, which will benefit from becoming a station on the Crossrail line when it opens in 2019.
Prices for one bedroom apartments in West Park Terrace are from £425,000, two bedroom apartments start from £570,000 and the three-bed überhaus penthouses are available from £700,000.

Planning consent has been granted for Phase 7.1 and construction is currently underway across another four phases of the £600m regeneration scheme, reports Countryside Properties.
Phase 7.1, design by architects Stitch Studio, will deliver 246 new homes and include 104 affordable homes and 142 for private sale homes, in a mix of apartments, houses and duplex überhaus™. Construction on these is expected to begin next summer, with completion by the end of 2019.
In recent months, construction has begun on Phase 4 designed by PCKO Architects and this will deliver 107 new homes across a full range of tenures. Demolition and site clearance has also started for Phase 5 which has been designed by HTA Architects and will deliver a further 271 new homes.
Overall completion of the 21 multi-phased scheme is currently anticipated to be in 2026.
Mike Woolliscroft, Operations Director for Countryside comments: “Acton Gardens is evolving rapidly and receiving planning consent for Phase 7.1 is another important milestone. Through the delivery of the early phases the development is already well established as a highly attractive place to live. Acton Gardens is a model for 21st century sustainable urban design, transforming the local area while integrating with its West London surroundings. A combination of the highest standards of architecture together with development of the community is fundamental to our vision for Acton Gardens and will continue to shape the scheme as it progresses over the coming years.”
In addition to new homes, the plans for Acton Gardens include a wide range of amenities to benefit the whole community. At the development’s heart, The Hub has 55,000 sq ft of space for community use as well as a central plaza with a supermarket and other community facilities. Extensive green open spaces are central to the designs and includes a series of parks, squares, communal gardens, play areas and allotments.
Councillor Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council, said: “I am really impressed with the progress being made at Acton Gardens. The development is an outstanding example of a successful resident-led project that is part of the wider revival of South Acton, one of the largest regeneration schemes in London. We are pleased to be continuing with our ambitious programme of estate and town centre renewal offering affordable housing across the borough, and this development greatly enhances the area.”
Now available at Acton Gardens, the Mansion Building Apartments at West Park Quarter are priced from £450,000 for a one bedroom apartment. The Station Square Apartments are priced from £403,500 for a one bedroom apartment, £535,500 for a two bedroom apartment and £624,750 for a three bedroom apartment.
