PLANS for the regeneration of Friary Park in Acton are being changed to cap the height of the buildings.

Developer Mount Anvil and the housing association, Catalyst, say they are responding to Ealing’s Tall Buildings Position Statement.

They say they will work with experts from the council and the Greater London Authority on the revised scheme, which would retain all of the outside space and amenities.

The joint venture also aims to build an additional 106 affordable homes in phase one.

Marcus Bate, a Mount Anvil director, said: “Our business is built on collaboration and listening.

“We’ve listened to concerns about the proposed increase in height to the four tallest buildings at Friary Park and we are collaborating closely with Ealing’s planners to find a better solution, which achieves the same community benefits.”

Richard Smith, of Catalyst, added: “Community-oriented communal outdoor spaces and enlarged balconies for all homes are going to really enhance the lives of Friary Park’s residents.”

The Friary Park regeneration first received planning permission for 990 homes, of which 45% would be genuinely affordable, in 2019.
