Permission granted for redevelopment of Homebase site

Homebase Acton

Acton's Homebase store will close to make way for a supermarket and residential units, following Ealing Council’s decision to grant permission for the redevelopment of the site, last Wednesday.

The site is just under 1 ha in size and is located at the junction linking the A40 Western Avenue and Old Oak Common Lane.

Barratt London, the site developer, advised that the new development will include 333 properties, including 114 affordable housing units, in blocks up to 16 storeys high. It will also comprise a community cafe, a communal garden and a pocket park.

The 2,086 square-metre supermarket will have 70 customer car parking spaces and the residential area of the site will only have 17 Blue Badge spaces.  Nearly 600 cycle spaces have been included in the plans. The development is within a Controlled Parking Zone and it is understood that residents will not be allowed to apply for permits. 

A spokesperson for the development said:

"The scheme would provide high-quality residential accommodation all of which meets or exceeds the minimum space standards and will have access to private and communal amenity areas."
