Highest building could be 25 storeys high

Transport for London (TfL) has partnered with Barratt London to develop a massive housing scheme along Bollo Lane.

Ealing Council granted planning permission in January 2021, but it has been stalled for two years. The development will include up to 900 flats in towers up to 25 storeys high.

The Bollo Lane development will be delivered in three phases, with the joint venture initially taking over TfL’s interest in the sites for the first two phases only.

Transport for London say the joint venture partnership has the potential to develop thousands of new flats from TfL’s remaining landbank. Other sites could also be developed under the partnership, including one near the London Transport Museum Depot.

More land in Acton could be incorporated into the partnership to deliver a new facility for the London Transport Museum and an additional 800 flats.

Barratt London will be the majority shareholder in the partnership with 51% of the shares, and will purchase TfL’s interest in the Bollo Lane site to develop it using equity and debt.

TfL has not given any indication as to when construction is due to start or a likely completion date but originally it stated that construction of all three phases would take five years to complete

Development “will provide affordable housing for hundreds of families” says Deputy Mayor for Housing

Tom Copley, Deputy Mayor for Housing said:

“This new development in Acton will provide affordable housing for hundreds of families and is a great example of how TfL land can be used to deliver much needed homes for Londoners.

“The new commercial space, as well as the green spaces and new walking and cycling areas will benefit not just the new residents but all those who live and work in the area.”

Gary Ennis, Regional Managing Director of Barratt London & Southern Regions, said, “There are exciting regeneration plans in and around Bollo Lane that will see the creation of new public spaces as well as new commercial opportunities for local businesses in West London.

“The regeneration of this site will be an exciting addition to South Acton and will bring much needed new homes to the area, with 50 per cent affordable housing. Its positive impact will be felt in Acton and Ealing with the delivery of jobs and homes for local residents, as well as enabling access to open space for the wider community and those that visit the area.

“The site benefits from excellent transport links being close to three stations. Future buyers are attracted by both the great connections into central London and the amenities of the local area including the easy access to a great number of green spaces, parks and nature reserves.

“We are proud to be continuing our partnership with Transport for London following the success of our joint venture at Blackhorse View, Walthamstow and the start of construction of our site at Wembley Park.”
