Regeneration informed by the community

Friary Park estate in Acton is being regenerated to deliver 1,228 new homes. Chapman Taylor was appointed to lead the redesign and delivery of an enhanced scheme that has been informed by residents and the local community following a comprehensive engagement programme.

Access to the outdoors

The enhanced masterplan promotes flexibility to accommodate home working and the provision of larger private amenity spaces. The landscape design now includes a range of new spaces that can be enjoyed by the residents and wider community, integrating it more successfully into the neighbourhood, including improved pedestrian and cycle routes in and around the scheme.

New amenity spaces

The redesign also creates a more active, mixed-use ground floor and enhanced resident and community amenities including a gym, co-working spaces, cinema and residents’ lounge, all arranged around a new central public square that creates a focal point at the heart of the scheme and promotes a sense of community. Affordable workspace (40% of the commercial floor area) will provide a permanent, affordable home for Ealing’s creative community.

Affordable, tenure-blind homes

The scheme will deliver 1,228 new homes, of which 50% are affordable homes. The scheme is tenure-blind and includes social rent, London affordable rent, intermediate tenure and private for-sale homes. The first phase of construction is now well underway with the first new affordable homes planned for occupation early in 2023 and the private for-sale homes being delivered from spring 2024.
