New Homes Delivery Programme - Latymer Community Church and Bramley Road New Homes

Closes 17 Jan 2022

Opened 6 Dec 2021

Overview

The Council is building 600 new homes in the borough including a minimum of 300 at social rent. This will be achieved without the loss of any existing homes.

There is an urgent need for social rent and key worker homes in the borough and our New Homes Delivery Programme will go some way to tackling our housing shortage.

Phase 1

Work has already started on the 97 homes that form part of Phase 1 of this programme. These sites comprise Kensal Road, Hewer Street, Acklam Road and St Helens.

Phase 2 

We are currently seeking planning permission for several sites in Phase 2 including Edenham, Silchester and Barlby. Our Cheyne site which includes a new children’s centre and nursery as well as new homes, is also preparing to submit plans for planning permission.

Phase 3

It is proposed that the Latymer Community Church and Bramley Road new homes scheme will be the first of our Phase 3 schemes.

We are in discussions with Latymer Community Church and the charity Livability about providing a brand new and improved community church on its existing site on Bramley Road alongside new homes and community improvements.

The idea stemmed from the Latymer Community Church who are the long-term tenants, and Livability, which owns the Bramley Road site, who were both interested in providing an enhanced new facility on the site together with the Council.

The land is currently owned by Livability with the adjoining land owned by the Council. The proposal is for the Council to purchase the land from Livability and provide an improved community facility.

Alongside plans for a new church facility, the slightly enlarged site could provide other local benefits including homes for social rent and key workers, as well as a permanent children’s ‘drop-in stay and play’ facility for local children, to house the existing facility which is temporarily located at The Curve. 

To make the plans viable in terms of the delivery of the new church and community facilities, it would be necessary to build the minimum number of new homes referred to in the presentation materials as part of the overall project.
