News: 17 October 2019New mixed-use development for Brentford scaffolding yard

Teams from our London and Cambridge offices have gained planning permission for Redrow and Catalyst by Design to transform a scaffolding storage site alongside the M4 in Brentford into a new mixed-use site up to 16-storeys in height.

The development at Capital Interchange Way will see 420 one, two and three-bedroom residential units built at the site, alongside a mix of commercial and retail floorspace as well as 805 cycle parking spaces.

Each of the apartments will have either a private balcony or terrace at the development which will spread across three block buildings, with the smallest block stepping from eight to 12 storeys and the highest being 16-storeys and will overlook Gunnersbury Park to the north.

As well as providing planning advice, our team also supported the application with an Environment Statement, a Heritage & Townscape Visual Impact Assessment as well as a Socio-economic Report.

Justin Kenworthy, Planning Partner in our London team, said "The redevelopment of this important site on one of the capital’s main thoroughfares will go a long way in supporting the Council’s aspirations to regenerate the Brentford East/Great West Corridor from an industrial area to a mixed-use area with much needed new homes.”

A number of benefits will be realised as a result of the scheme being built. This includes, 488  jobs created during the construction phase and up to 385 in the operational phase, the provision of 420 new homes within the emerging Opportunity Area, as well as 209 shared-ownership and affordable-rented homes. There will also be public realm improvements to the Capital Interchange Way.
