Clarion outlines plans for affordable housing in Brent

Wharf BrentClarion Housing Group has announced that it will deliver 135 new homes in Brent, aimed at buyers who are currently locked out of the housing market. 

The Group –which is one of the UK’s leading developer housing associations – secured the Abbey Wharf site in Alperton from Inland Homes. 

Clarion has entered into a partnership with Inland Partnerships to build 111 shared ownership homes, 24 homes for affordable rent and two commercial units.

The 0.76 hectare site already has planning permission and the development is expected to be completed in spring 2020.

Philip Browne, New Business and Partnerships Director for Clarion said: “As one of the Mayor’s housing zones, Alperton is set to benefit from a significant increase in housebuilding over the next few years.  

“Our scheme at Abbey Wharf will transform a disused industrial site into affordable homes and forms part of the wider plans to regenerate Alperton.”  

Wharf Brent 2Cllr Harbi Farah, Cabinet Member for Housing and Welfare Reform for Brent Council, said: “We welcome the development of more affordable homes in Brent. The Council is committed to providing affordable housing and doing all we can to help residents affected by the housing crisis.”

Around 3,000 new homes are expected to be built in Alperton by 2025, a third of which will be affordable.
