A FUNDING package will allow work to begin on converting the Ironbridge House site in Windmill Lane, Southall, into homes.

The £11.8m advance from Paragon Bank is for EquaGroup, which aims to build 57 flats on the former commercial site, close to the rail line and a short distance from Ealing Hospital.

Work is due to be completed by January 2022.

This is the fourth EquaGroup project that Paragon has supported over the past two and a half years, totalling 144 homes.
