Alperton - Regeneration
Network Housing Group has acquired a site in Alperton with consent for a 440 home scheme from Neptune.
NHG has exchanged contracts on 243 Ealing Road, Alperton, one of the largest London sites to be acquired by a registered provider since 2010. As lead developer, Network will turn this 3.75-acre disused brownfield site into an urban mixed-use neighbourhood. The site has resolution to grant planning permission for 441 homes and 15,000 sq ft of commercial space.
The site forms the gateway to the Alperton regeneration area which Brent Council hope will see 1,600 new homes delivered over the next ten years. It borders the Grand Union Canal giving the development a high-quality waterfront setting. Development is expected to start before the end of 2012.
Network Housing Group supported Brent Council in developing the Alperton regeneration masterplan, which was approved in 2010. The Group is also just completing Peppermint Heights, a landmark tower near the site providing 84 affordable homes and a nursery.
