Last week bptw successfully secured planning approval from LB Ealing for Phases 3 & 4 of the Rectory Park regeneration scheme in Northolt. With phases 1 and 2 of bptw’s masterplan already complete, these latest stages of the project for Network Housing Group will deliver 289 new homes and a community centre, including a large proportion of private sale homes to cross-subsidise the redevelopment of the estate.
Vehemently supporting bptw’s design proposals, LB Ealing’s planning case officer stated in his report to committee: “The design quality of proposed housing is considered to be very high and would provide a significantly improved residential neighbourhood with a distinctive local character. The approach to detailing and distinguishing the communal core entrances to the residential apartment buildings and the individual entrances to ground floor flats and houses is particularly welcomed. The provision of well-designed, legible building entrances would positively contribute to the place-making strategy.”
bptw’s competition winning masterplan has seen the high intervention estate being transformed into a vibrant mixed-tenure development with a combination of 1-4 bedroom properties designed to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes level 4. The completion of Phase 2 earlier this year saw the handover of 68 homes, with feedback from residents heavily informing the Phase 3 & 4 proposals. Now being marketed as Mandeville Place, when complete the project will deliver 449 mixed tenure homes. Construction on Phases 3 and 4 is expected to commence early in the new year.
