A Hounslow Council-owned organisation has submitted a planning application to kick-start a development programme which will deliver up to 844 homes.
Lampton 360 has lodged plans for a residential led scheme at Nantly House, on 33 Lampton Road.
The scheme will feature 74 studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, along with flexible ground floor space.
It will include 40% homes which will be allocated as affordable (26% social rent and 14% intermediate), 40% units for private sale and 20% for private rent.
The site, currently owned by Hounslow Council, will be transferred over to Lampton 360.
The project will be carried out by Lampton Development – a property developer established to redevelop surplus local authority land.
This is part of a development programme, approved by cabinet in April, which has identified 11 council-owned sites available for the construction of up to 844 units, with 40% affordable housing.
The chair of Lampton 360 board, Howard Wollaston, expressed his satisfaction with the fact that the project was moving forward: “We are using local authority surplus land to provide much needed housing to meet increasing demand in the borough.
“The scheme will be a mixed-tenure, mixed-use scheme, that will be socially, economically and environmentally sustainable.”
Subject to permission, work is set to start in 2017.
