THE GREEN QUARTER CONSULTATION UPDATE
Thank you for getting involved in shaping the future phases of development at The Green Quarter. Your participation and feedback over the past three months have helped us to develop our proposals ahead of submitting a planning application to the London Borough of Ealing.
The Green Quarter is in the process of a remarkable transformation journey, transitioning from an airport car park, into an energetic and valuable addition to the town of Southall.
The Green Quarter’s transformation includes 13 acres of beautiful parks, meadows, and wetlands. It will be one of London’s most net biodiverse neighbourhoods. The Green Quarter will deliver change over many decades, ever evolving, and adding to Southall’s diverse character, heritage, and culture. At its heart is a clear commitment to principles established in the original masterplan. It will provide a place for Southall to meet and enjoy, with access to play areas, nature, green spaces and community activities and spaces.
Our emerging site development plans aim to fulfil these aspirations by enhancing The Green Quarter’s legacy and providing people with a place to live, visit, and connect with nature.
To date, we have delivered 1.5 acres of the new Central Gardens, which when complete will span 4.5 acres. Central Gardens has already become a place for the community to meet up and celebrate a variety of events such as the King’s Coronation.
Around a thousand residents now call The Green Quarter home, with many living in the 304 already delivered affordable homes. The Green Quarter will continue to provide much needed housing and increase Southall’s stock of affordable homes.
The newly opened Parkside Yards brings community activity and social spaces to The Green Quarter. People can make use of the community centre, food and beverage offerings, the new play space, and the tree nursery. The latter houses more than 600 trees and gives visitors the opportunity to learn about biodiversity.
We undertook a community survey, which received feedback from 145 residents, businesses, and community groups. It provided great insight into what the community wants and needs. Key themes that arose were affordable housing, access to parks & green space, and a larger provision of shops restaurants and leisure.
Community Engagement Steering Group
Working with our community engagement steering group, made up of The Green Quarter residents, wider residents, local businesses, and political stakeholders, we have just awarded the first of our community grants to support local projects.
