London Mayor Sadiq Khan visited Notting Hill Housing’s development in Lampton Road in Hounslow last week to find out about the 919 homes we will build there – more than half of which will provide affordable housing.
The homes will be built on the site of Hounslow Civic Centre, with the council moving to a smaller, more efficient building nearby.
Mr Khan’s visit follows a ground-breaking ceremony in January, where James Murray, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development, officially launched work on site.
Andy Belton, Chief Operating Officer for Notting Hill Housing, said: “It was great that Sadiq was able to visit our Lampton Road development. He was very friendly, and curious about the site, as well as about what NHH is doing elsewhere across London.
“Lampton Road is a very good example of partnership working with the London Borough of Hounslow, and it is fantastic for us that it is being recognised by City Hall.”
The project falls in one of the first of the Mayor’s Housing Zones, which bring together councils, housing associations, developers and businesses to support plans to build more new and affordable homes in London.
Notting Hill Housing, working with Linkcity, will provide the new homes at the current civic centre site in Lampton Road, with grant support from the Mayor of London funding an increased amount of affordable housing.
Meanwhile, Bouygues UK will be building new civic offices, a library and café for Hounslow Council in nearby Bath Road. The new office will support modern and flexible working practices, with shared offices for council, police and health services right in the heart of Hounslow.
