Copley Close

The regeneration project

In 2012, the Ealing Council made a commitment to regenerate Copley Close using its own resources. Changes to the way council housing is funded means Ealing Council is able to fund refurbishment of the estate and to act as both developer and landlord. This allows the council to retain asset value of its land and ensure that 65% of homes will be affordable. Ealing Council is the first local authority to do so.

In February 2014, the council’s regeneration of Copley Close won a prestigious London Planning Award for the ‘Best Conceptual Project’, an award which recognises excellence in building and planning.

The regeneration project includes the following:  

  • Mixed tenure
  • New community and retail facilities
  • New private and public spaces
  • Better privacy for residents
  • Improved vehicle and pedestrian connections
  • Improved car parking
  • Improved security
