Countryside, one of the UK’s leading home builders specialising in placemaking and regeneration, has been chosen as a preferred development partner, along with one of the UK’s largest housing associations, Home Group, to deliver the next phase of the South Kilburn Estate regeneration programme.
The Peel development, at the heart of the South Kilburn estate, will deliver 308 homes of which 40% will be affordable. There will also be a Health & Wellbeing Hub featuring a health centre and gym, an array of shops and a new market square. The development will have a strong social value offer which will tie in with the wider South Kilburn regeneration.
The original scheme was designed by Penoyre & Prasad architects and will be taken forward by Child Graddon Lewis Architects. This forms part of the wider South Kilburn Regeneration Masterplan.
Andy Fancy, Managing Director for Partnerships South, North & South London at Countryside, commented:
“We are delighted to be selected for the next phase of this exciting estate regeneration scheme together with Home Group. Not only are we providing new high-quality homes across a range of tenures, we are ensuring local residents benefit from attractive public open spaces and crucial local amenities.”
Councillor Shama Tatler, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Highways and Planning at Brent Council, said:
“The selection of Countryside and Home Group as our preferred development partner for the next phase of this scheme is an important step towards the regeneration of the estate and the council’s commitment to deliver much-needed new homes and facilities in the area.”
Brian Ham, Executive Director at Home Group, commented:
“We are pleased to have been named preferred partner alongside Countryside, who we have worked with extensively. Our plans will deliver fantastic affordable homes for local people, while fostering a sense of community and wellbeing that will make this a neighbourhood that people are proud to call home.”
