The 100% affordable homes scheme, which is located on Bath Road, was given the green light by Hounslow Council.

It is being developed by A2Dominion, a leading residential property group with a social purpose that has worked in the borough of Hounslow for more than 70 years.

Helping to meet housing demand in the borough, the scheme includes 83 homes for affordable rent and 93 properties for shared ownership, designed to help first-time buyers get onto the property ladder.

A new 6,100 sq ft supermarket, play area and outdoor space for residents are other key features of the scheme.

Cllr Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said: “The redevelopment of this site will reinvigorate the area, bringing in high quality homes at prices local people can afford to rent or buy.

“It also creates a new and more direct link between Beaversfield Park and Hounslow West underground station, opening up this fantastic green space and improving connectivity, both of which are key elements in our Local Plan.”

Darrell Mercer, A2Dominion Chief Executive, said: “We are proud of our strong relationship with Hounslow, having developed 2,600 homes in the borough.

“Bath Road is a 100% affordable scheme, set to provide 176 much-needed new homes, and is the latest example of our positive contribution to the area.

“With over 300 homes in the development pipeline in total, we look forward to continuing to invest in Hounslow.”

The development is being built by construction firm Higgins, with the planning scheme designed by Colwyn Foulkes & Partners and the delivery architect being Fourpoint Architects.

With construction work having started in August 2019, the scheme is due for completion during the Summer of 2021. The shared ownership homes will be marked through A2Dominion’s sales and marketing brand, Fabrica, and the affordable rented homes allocated via Hounslow Council.
