Friary Park, Ealing

We’re planning to redevelop the Friary Park estate in Acton to improve the design and quality of residents’ homes.

Friary Park was originally built for private sale by Laing Construction. It was purchased by Catalyst (then Ealing Family Housing Association) in 1987.

We’ve been considering a range of options to improve the neighbourhood and have decided that the best route is to redevelop the estate – demolishing existing homes and replacing them with new, high-quality, energy-efficient ones.

We’ll now be consulting residents about our proposals and preparing plans for the redevelopment of the estate.

Our FAQs answer the key questions you might have about the development. We have also put together a rumour-buster to address and clarify some of the key issues about the project, including rent and the height of the development.

Our plans

We’ve been talking to residents and other stakeholders about our plans in pre-planning application consultation, which began in November 2014. We ran a series of design workshops and one-off events, finishing with a a drop-in event to show how the proposals had evolved with the community’s feedback.

Following this, we spent some time negotiating with owners of properties on The Drive to include their properties in our proposals. We then developed the design further to make best use of the available land. We showed the updated plans to the community at two exhibitions on 18 and 21 February 2017.

We will show the latest designs to the local community and stakeholders in pre-planning exhibitions which we have advertised to them.
