A presentation was made this week (23 September) to members of the Hounslow planning committee on the final stages of the Brentford Stadium enabling development.

Developer EcoWorld has confirmed that the first residents will be moving into the new buildings this winter and construction is underway on all phases of the scheme except the so-called Duffy site.

The final phase (phase 3) of the scheme is named ‘Duffy’ after the previous occupants of the site at the western end of Lionel Road South.

Final permission still needs to be granted for 275 new homes in four blocks on the site which, when completed will bring the total number of new housing units around the stadium to over 1,000. 740 new flats are already under construction with a mix of Build to Rent and private sale.

At the same time EcoWorld in progressing with the demolition of Griffin Park and the erection of 149 homes at that site.

A revised application for the Duffy site will see a number of design improvements, including the division of Block C into two buildings and the reorientation of buildings. This reorientation also provides an additional courtyard with gardens that will be accessible for all residents of the development. All 42 affordable homes now proposed in the scheme are London Affordable Rent, with 71% of these as family homes and 29% are 3 bedroom properties.

It is hoped that this application will be considered at the October Planning Committee and the Griffin Park scheme application is due shortly.

The developer was not allowed to commence housing development until the stadium was operational. With both Brentford FC and London Irish now playing at the stadium this marks the end of an 18-year-old long journey since the club first identified the site for its new home.
