Catalyst and Mount Anvil are working in partnership to redevelop Friary Park in Acton.
The project will deliver:
- up to 990 new tenure-blind homes
- new landscaped green space and play areas for children and young people, including an improved Multi-use games area
- An improved community facility
- New commercial units
The regenerated Friary Park will be a mixed-tenure neighbourhood, well-designed, safer and better connected. All existing Catalyst tenants on Friary Park have the option of being re-housed in the new development if they wish to.
Since 2014, Catalyst has undertaken extensive consultation with residents of Friary Park and the surrounding area on the proposals for Friary Park. Catalyst and Mount Anvil worked together to submit a planning application in 2019. The application included an outline application for the whole project, and a detailed application for Phase 1. The application was given approval to grant planning permission at planning committee on 20 November 2019.
About Catalyst and Mount Anvil
The partnership between Catalyst and Mount Anvil will bring together our complementary experience and expertise to deliver high quality new homes and support a thriving neighbourhood at Friary Park.
Catalyst is a one of the leading housing associations in London and the South East and is a member of the G15 group of London’s largest housing associations. Having recently merged with Aldwyck Housing Group in 2019, we now manage over 32,000 rented and shared-ownership homes.
We are experts in place making and developing tenure-blind neighbourhoods, with a strategy in place that will see us build up to 1,300 quality new homes each year. Our approach to creative design, effective urban planning and high quality development is underpinned by our long-term interest in our neighbourhoods. By adopting a stewardship role, we ensure that the places we help to create are well maintained, look great and remain desirable places to live.
Like Catalyst, Mount Anvil has a wealth of expertise in delivering award-winning, high-quality, tenure-blind homes in London; in particular, delivering complex schemes to an exemplary standard. This will complement Catalyst’s experience of working with residents to regenerate existing estates; delivering high-quality mixed-tenure developments where people choose to live and work; providing support and opportunities for the local community.
While Catalyst and Mount Anvil will work together to build an excellent development at Friary Park, Catalyst will continue to be landlord of the affordable homes .
