South Harrow regeneration: 89 homes nearly complete

The Grange Farm estate in South Harrow is undergoing a major regeneration, and the first phase of this project is nearly complete.

The estate is set to welcome 89 new homes, with 69 of them being rented by the council.

Residents of South Harrow’s Grange Farm Estate can look forward to a brighter future as plans for the regeneration of the area move ahead. The regeneration project involves the demolition of 282 existing flats and bungalows and the construction of 574 new homes, including 216 for social rent, 25 for shared ownership, and 333 for sale.

In addition to the new homes, the Grange Farm Estate regeneration project will also include the construction of a new community centre, improved pedestrian access to Northolt Road, and a new pedestrian link to an adjacent retail park.

The project also promises high-quality landscaping to enhance the beauty of the area.

Planning permission was granted in March 2019, with detailed consent for Phase 1, which will include the construction of 89 homes. The project also received outline consent for Phases 2 and 3, which will involve the construction of an additional 485 homes.

While the numbers involved in the project may change as the redesign work progresses through later phases, the overall vision for the area remains focused on creating a sustainable, attractive, and thriving community.

The Grange Farm Estate regeneration project represents an exciting new chapter for South Harrow with phase 1 now almost completed.

Cllr Mina Parmar, the Cabinet Member for Housing at Harrow Council, recently visited the estate to take a look at the progress.

In a video discussing the council’s corporate strategy, Cllr Parmar highlighted the key commitments made as part of the regeneration project. She was pleased to announce that Phase 1 is nearly complete, and in the coming months, 69 families from the estate will be moving into their new council homes.

In addition to the rented homes, the estate will also be offering 20 properties for shared ownership. This is an excellent opportunity for families who live or work in Harrow to get on the housing ladder and own their own home.

The regeneration of the Grange Farm estate is a significant development for the South Harrow community, providing much-needed affordable housing and improving the quality of life for residents.
