Peabody has signed an agreement with Ealing Council to deliver around 500 homes over the next five years in Southall, West London.

As well as the new homes, the development - known as 'The Green' - will include a substantial area of commercial space. Half the homes will be affordable, with 145 due to be 'affordable rent' - including social rent, and the rest for shared ownership.

The development will also include high-quality public spaces, and will link to Southall station, which is due to be joined to Central London via the new Crossrail line.

It is hoped the new scheme will provide around 260 jobs.

Cambridge Network: Further reading

A new strategy to tackle South Cambridgeshire's housing challenges has been approved by the District Council - with an emphasis on providing homes that are affordable for local workers.

The Council's Cabinet has approved the Greater Cambridge Housing Strategy - a joined-up document with Cambridge City Council that looks at how both authorities aim to meet housing challenges across the area from now up until 2023.

One of the main goals of the strategy is to ensure there are enough energy efficient, affordable to run homes that are close to where people work and public transport.

Through the new housing strategy, South Cambridgeshire District Council has also committed to working to bring forward the right homes for the area's ageing population.

Additionally, the Council has committed to working with developers to help them find ways to make it viable to deliver affordable housing requirements.
