Plans approved for a mixed-tenure homes project in Wembley

Wates and London’s Brent Council have approved a development deal to construct 304 homes in Wembley. Over two sites, the £100 million project will see the construction of a mix of affordable homes and homes for private sale.

The plans, created by a design team under the direction of Karakusevic Carson Architects, call for the construction of 250 homes on land east of Cecil Avenue, formerly Copland School’s location. Another 54 homes will be built nearby at Ujima House, including workspaces and a roadside café.

At the street level, the new development will also include community floor space and commercial units. On the Cecil Avenue site, 152 homes will be available for private sale. The remaining 152 homes on Cecil Avenue and Ujima House will mix low- and middle-income housing options for council tenants.

The mixed-tenure homes project in Wembley

The Wembley Housing Zone is designated and partially funded by the Mayor of London. It aims to produce new residences, employment opportunities, leisure, retail, and workspaces. Furthermore, it will improve the public realm and increase accessibility for pedestrians, cyclists, and other road users.

Wates Residential’s regional managing director, Nick Williams, stated: “We will collaborate with the neighborhood to deliver these mixed-tenure homes. This entails using the services of neighborhood businesses and individuals along the way. Thus, we can revitalize the area and foster a new community.

The project to construct 304 homes in Wembley represents another effort by Brent Council and Wates to work together. Ninety-nine council homes are currently being built at Church End by both parties. Additionally, 149 homes have just been delivered to Knowles House and Anansi House.
