Wood End, 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 of Greenford, was formerly the Wood End library.   

Our contractor, Henry Construction, is building 11 new homes in a four-storey block at the site, all of which will be let at London affordable rent, which is a type of social rent. We are also providing a new purpose-built community library.  

The further breakdown of homes is as follows:  

  • Three one-bed flats
  • Eight two-bed flats.

We expect construction to be completed by late summer 2023.
