A mixed-use development of 112 new homes at 300 Harrow Road that Willmott Dixon will deliver for Westminster City Council has been awarded planning permission. The development will consist of one, two and three bedroom homes to suit a variety of households with 50% affordable, either social or intermediate rent, allowing a wide range of people the chance to live in the heart of London. The affordable homes will be let to people who live and work locally, helping to address the need for more social and intermediate housing in the area.

Alongside new homes, the mixed-use development will deliver over 1,400 square metres of community facilities including a new community hall, nursery, flexible workspace and canal-side café. The development will also improve the surrounding green space, activating the area and giving residents easy access to Regents Canal.

Willmott Dixon will work with the architect Child Graddon Lewis, with both companies behind Westminster’s award-nominated Dudley House, a development of 197 affordable homes which launched in Paddington Basin last year.

The scheme will deliver comfortable, modern homes that are environmentally sustainable. Each home will have an air source heat pump, and residents will benefit from solar panels, rainwater collection, and living roofs, resulting in reduced carbon emissions and overall lower energy costs.

300 Harrow Road will be among the first delivered by Westminster Builds, the council’s wholly owned company established to help deliver the council’s ambitious regeneration and development programme. The affordable homes will be part-funded by the sale of the private homes at 300 Harrow Road, allowing the council to maximise the number of affordable homes for the community.
