Green light for Barratt 450-home Wembley Park scheme
A joint venture between Transport for London and Barratt London has got the planning green light for over 450 homes next to Wembley Park London Underground station.
The proposals will deliver 454 homes, including 40% affordable, and improvements to the public realm and new operational space for TfL.
The scheme, which covers a 1.6-acre site, has been designed by Tate Hindle architects and will be delivered across five buildings.
The design has a focus on sustainability – with green and biodiverse roofs as well as wildlife-friendly landscaping such as bird boxes and bee bricks included.
Emma Hatch, senior property development manager at TfL, said: "This is the second project with Barratt London and builds on our track record for delivering much-needed new homes in the capital.
"Our first homes at Blackhorse View in Waltham Forest started selling earlier this year, showing our developments have been designed thoughtfully with both the community and residents in mind."
Jim Wood, London Operations Managing Director at Barratt London, said: "It is a great privilege to be delivering this development in partnership with Transport for London, and we are looking forward to starting work onsite for the project in 2021."
