Peabody in the news

We've signed an agreement with Ealing Council to deliver around 500 homes over the next five years in Southall, west London.

As well as the new homes, the development, known as ‘The Green’, will include 50,000m² of commercial space. Half the homes will be affordable, with 145 due to be affordable rent, including social rent, and the rest for shared ownership.

The development will also include high-quality public spaces, and will link to Southall station, which is due to be joined to central London via the new Crossrail line. It is hoped the new scheme will provide around 260 jobs.

We will be consulting the local community on our draft plans this summer, before submitting a planning application by the end of the year. Work is expected to start onsite in 2021.

Dick Mortimer, Executive Director of Development and Sales at Peabody, said: “This project is another example of Peabody’s commitment to long-term and sustainable regeneration. We are delighted to be working with both the council and the local community which will ensure the long-term success of this project.”

Tony Clements, executive director for regeneration and housing at Ealing Council, said: “Ealing is committed to delivering 2,500 genuinely affordable homes by 2022, and working with housing associations that have a strong social conscience, like Peabody, is key to this.”

Ealing Council chose Peabody as its preferred development partner for The Green following a tender process last year.
