Transport for London (TfL) and Barratt London joint venture has secured planning consent from the Brent Council to deliver 454 new homes in Wembley, UK.

To be built next to Wembley Park London Underground station, the scheme also includes a retail unit, enhancements to the public realm, and new operational space for TfL.

Designed by TateHindle architects, the development covers a 1.6-acre site and will be delivered across five buildings.

TfL said that the new scheme will be a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom properties and will be offered as a combination of intermediate housing, including shared ownership, and London Affordable Rent.

The project is designed with focus on sustainability such as green and biodiverse roofs as well as wildlife-friendly landscaping with the inclusion of bird boxes and bee bricks.

In addition, the development will also utilise renewable energy through solar panels and air source heat pumps.

The proposal is part of TfL's housing programme, under which it aims to provide 10,000 homes across the capital. 

TfL senior property development manager Emma Hatch said: “We are thrilled to get the go-ahead for our development at Wembley, which will deliver hundreds of new homes as well as a new retail opportunity and improvements for the local community.

“This is the second project with Barratt London and builds on our track record for delivering much-needed new homes in the capital.

Our first homes at Blackhorse View in Waltham Forest started selling earlier this year, showing our developments have been designed thoughtfully with both the community and residents in mind.”

Furthermore, the joint venture is expecting to commence construction work on the project next year.
