Chesterton Close and Evesham Close, Greenford


There is an acute affordable housing crisis in Ealing borough, with a shortage of homes that are available at rents that local people on moderate incomes can afford. With around 12,000 households waiting for a council home, delivering more genuinely affordable homes for Ealing to be let by the council or housing associations, is a key priority for the council. Find out how the council is tackling the housing situation.

The site

This site, in a residential area about a kilometre from Greenford town centre, is infilling the space between two existing housing blocks, which was formerly occupied by two garage blocks.

Our contractor, Henry Construction, is building 25 new homes at the site, in low-rise blocks of flats as well as two houses. All of the homes will be let at London Affordable Rent, which is a type of social rent. The further breakdown is as follows:  

  • Eight one-bed flats
  • Nine two-bed flats
  • Six three-bed flats
  • Two two-bed houses.

We expect construction to be completed by late summer 2023.
