Southall is one of the first nine areas in the capital to be designated by the Greater London Authority (GLA) as a housing zone.
Ealing Council’s successful bid means Southall will receive a share of £260 million, provided by the GLA to accelerate housebuilding on brownfield sites across London.
The new housing zone will deliver 4,345 new homes, 1,785 of which will be developed as affordable units. The zone will also improve the station arrival point for Crossrail and allow for infrastructure improvements to help connect sites across Southall.
Councillor Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council, said: ‘Southall is being transformed through unprecedented investment, which will secure its future as one of the premier towns in west London to live, work and visit.”
