TfL’s property firm to work with Barratt London on Acton site

Bollo Lane, Acton.

Transport for London (TfL)’s wholly owned commercial property company, TTL Properties Ltd (TTLP), has appointed Barratt London as its joint venture partner for the delivery of its site by Bollo Lane in Acton.

The new partnership will deliver up to 900 new homes – with 50% affordable housing.

There are plans for the partnership to deliver further development sites in west London, as part of TfL’s wider commercial development programme, building new homes that London urgently needs.

These new commercial developments will generate vital revenue to allow TfL to keep the city moving and invest in safe, green and reliable public transport.

The site in Bollo Lane received the go-ahead in January 2021 by Ealing Council’s planning committee to deliver up to 900 new homes in Acton, as well as new commercial space which can be used by local businesses and public space for green areas, play spaces, new footpaths and pavements.

The development will be delivered in three phases with the first phase comprising 195 build to rent homes, 450 homes in the second phase, and a further 250 in the third phase.

Jonathan Cornelius, head of property development at TfL, said: “This joint venture partnership demonstrates how we are going from strength to strength with our wider commercial development programme, which will see thousands of high-quality homes delivered across London alongside improvements for the local communities in the areas where we build. This partnership will also help generate vital additional revenue, which will be reinvested into the transport network and help fund a safe, green and reliable public transport network.”

Gary Ennis, regional managing director of Barratt London & Southern Regions, said: “The regeneration of this site will be an exciting addition to South Acton and will bring much needed new homes to the area, with 50% affordable housing. Its positive impact will be felt in Acton and Ealing with the delivery of jobs and homes for local residents, as well as enabling access to open space for the wider community and those that visit the area. The site benefits from excellent transport links being close to three stations.”

Further land to the north in Acton, which could be incorporated into the partnership, could deliver a new facility for the London Transport Museum with a further 800 homes.

The joint venture partnership can develop other TfL sites across west London helping to deliver thousands of new homes with close access to public transport. 

They are also planning to provide new educational and job opportunities for those considering a career in the construction industry, including for those who live locally, through apprenticeships and training programmes.

TTLP and Barratt London are nearing completion of their first joint venture development at Blackhorse View, opposite Blackhorse Road station. It is delivering 350 new homes in the borough of Waltham Forest, with 50% affordable housing, and a new public cycle hub. They are also working together on a new development by Wembley Park Tube station, which will deliver more than 450 new homes including 40% affordable housing, a retail unit and new operational space for TfL.
