Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, has approved a development for 400 homes in Brentford, 50% of which will be affordable housing.
The development is set to be built on a former Citroën car dealership.
In February the scheme was refused by Hounslow Council, however Khan called the scheme in.
Khan negotiated the 50% affordable housing, which is an increase from 40% affordable.
If construction has not begun within two years of the date of approval, it will be vulnerable to a review mechanism that leads to the developer having to provide more affordable homes.
“This scheme shows how we can unlock the potential of an underused site to build more of the genuinely affordable homes Londoners so urgently need.
I have carefully considered the impacts of these plans – particularly the effect on historic buildings in nearby Kew Gardens – and have concluded that the benefit of delivering more than 400 homes, including 218 genuinely affordable homes, justifies granting permission.”
