Capita’s architects and the client’s design team recently gained planning consent for the five hectare site of the former Middlesex Business Park in Southall, Ealing.
The scheme includes a large quantum of residential accommodation along with retail space, a hotel, offices and student accommodation all configured around a hectare of new public space. New links into the town centre and a ‘green lung’ park (a central requirement of the Southall Opportunity Area Planning Framework plan) form part of this consented scheme.
There will be over 835 proposed houses and apartments ranging from one to four-bed units with some affordable (including social rented, affordable rented and intermediate housing) and private ownership. The approved scheme will incorporate locally listed heritage structures (including a going-concern radio station) and preserves the potential for a new link road through the town.
Capita accessed the wider areas of the business for this project by introducing GL Hearn, our property and planning consultancy, to support close work with the London Borough of Ealing and the site owner to deliver the consent through a complex pre-application process with important stakeholders including the Greater London Authority (GLA).
Capita also acted as transport consultants to advise site logistics due to the scheme’s close proximity to the new Southall Crossrail station.
