The development of affordable family homes for rent on an overcrowded estate is now a step closer to completion.
Two developers have now made the shortlist to regenerate the Green Man Lane Estate in West Ealing after a survey of residents last year revealed dozens of families were living in small one and two bedroom flats.
Rydon Construction working with A2Dominion Housing and Countryside Properties working with London and Quadrant Housing Trust will hold public exhibitions to show their ideas for the area. The redevelopment will provide more affordable family homes and those for private owner-ship. Dark alleyways and unused paths will be removed to reduce anti-social behaviour.
Housing leader, Councillor Will Brooks, said: "This is another important step forward for the regeneration of the Green Man Lane estate. The developers have come up with some really interesting ideas already and I'm sure residents will be keen to come along to the exhibitions to find out more about the proposals.
"It might seem like a slow process, but it's really important that we get this right and develop the kind of homes that will meet the needs of our residents both for now and for future generations."
The council is also in the process of selecting developers for Copley Close and Rectory Park estates.
All three areas were prioritised for action after a review of 34 estates in the borough showed they were in desperate need of improvement.
