New shops, homes and leisure facilities on Brentford High Street moved a step closer last week.
In 2015, the area south of the High Street was granted planning permission for a mix of new homes, shops and leisure facilities. To enable this to happen, the applicant Ballymore and Hounslow Council have been working together to ensure that work can start across the entire site.
Last week, a Compulsory Purchase Order was made over the whole site, making it easier for Ballymore to start work on the buildings that have been granted permission, just as the Council did to enable the development of Brentford FC’s new stadium.
This major milestone will lead to the final parts of the jigsaw being completed.
Ballymore’s MD John Mulryan said “I am grateful to Hounslow Council for their continued commitment to regenerating Brentford’s High Street and Riverside.
“The new homes, shops, community and leisure facilities will be of a great benefit to residents for years to come. Local people have been waiting a long time for the regeneration of Brentford Town Centre and we thank them for their patience – it will be worth the wait.”
The completed site will revitalise the High Street and waterside areas, as well as providing much needed housing.
Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said: “ This is fantastic news and I know one in which residents will be delighted about.
“The regeneration of Brentford High Street is significant to the community it serves and is part of our on-going commitment to improve quality of life for our residents in every way possible.”
