Brentford Waterside gets the go ahead

Civic leaders have cut the ribbon on the commencement of work on one of the most ambitious and extensive regeneration projects along London’s waterside at Brentford.

Ballymore’s long-awaited Brentford Waterside regeneration scheme between the High Street and the River Brent will bring almost 900 homes, more than 25,000 sq m of commercial space, a new public square and better waterside connections, reinstating historic yards. The Thames Path will also be extended along the waterfront with improved waterside infrastructure and permanent boat moorings.

At a formal ceremony with civic leaders to mark the commencement of demolition works within the first phase - where a third of all the new homes will be located - Hounslow Council leader Cllr Steve Curran, said:

“Regenerating the High Street and restoring access to the waterside will contribute positively to the identity of Brentford, enhancing civic pride and cultural opportunities.

“The scheme will also give a boost to local employment opportunities, with some 950 new jobs as a result of the scheme. This long-anticipated redevelopment will create a high quality and vibrant area within the heart of the town centre, creating an attractive place to live, shop, work, and for leisure.”

The event coincided with an announcement by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, confirming a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) for the planned regeneration of the area.

Ballymore’s managing director John Mulryan said: “We are delighted to have made progress and commenced these works at Brentford Waterside. We know that there has been much anticipation locally around the scheme.

“We are passionate about creating an exciting, contemporary district and I am delighted that, with demolition underway, we can turn our vision into a reality for the people of Brentford.”

Also attending the ceremony were Hounslow’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Cllr Katherine Dune, Cabinet Member for Finance and Citizen Engagement, Cllr Theo Dennison, ward councillors Mel Collins and Guy Lambert, as well as John Mulryan and the company’s development manager for the scheme Ed Heppenstall.
