The regeneration of Brentford High Street moved one step closer for work to begin to build new waterside homes, shops and leisure facilties.
The move means developers Ballymore can start much-awaited building works on the sites that had previously granted permission.
Ballymore’s MD John Mulryan said: “I am grateful to Hounslow Council for their continued commitment to regenerating Brentford’s High Street and Riverside.
“The new homes, shops, community and leisure facilities will be of a great benefit to residents for years to come.
"Local people have been waiting a long time for the regeneration of Brentford Town Centre and we thank them for their patience – it will be worth the wait.”
In 2015, the area south of the High Street was granted planning permission for a mixed-use development consisting of around 900 new homes.
Since then Ballymore and Hounslow council have been working together to ensure work can start across the entire site.
The project aims to revitalise the High Street and waterside areas while providing much needed housing.
Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said: “This is fantastic news and I know one in which residents will be delighted about.
“The regeneration of Brentford High Street is significant to the community it serves and is part of our on-going commitment to improve quality of life for our residents in every way possible.”
