Green Man Lane | Ealing W5

Official website: http://www.greenmanlane.co.uk/




£130 million ($205m) scheme to regenerate Green Man Lane
Premier Construction
23 January 2013
Quote:
A long-term scheme to regenerate Green Man Lane in Ealing continues to make good progress.

The £130 million Green Man Lane project comprises the construction of 853 flats along with associated landscaping works. The project, which is divided into six phases, is a joint venture between Rydon Construction and A2Dominion Housing Group Ltd and is being seen as an important step in revitalising a key area of Ealing.

Director of Regeneration & Housing for Ealing Council, Pat Hayes, said:

“The Green Man Lane project is one of the last projects to receive Social Housing Grant which has been largely abolished by the current Government – though it is a commercially sustainable scheme with new build homes for sale subsidising the provision of homes for social rent at existing target rent levels.

“Green Man Lane is the first of Ealing’s projects to replace its most problematic large estates and as such has been the path finder for six other similar projects which are now on track.”

Nice. Cheers mate.

Some news about the London airport expantion plans. The unrealistic Boris Island has been ditched in favour of greatly expanding London Stanstead.

Makes much more sense to be honest. Stanstead is a great airport, clean and modern but always too small... More of a Heathrow overspill. But now it will be able to compete in its own right.

New runways and improved rail and road connectivity will see Stanstead reach its full potential. And remove the need for a new runway at Heathrow too without damaging its business.

It comes after a major report claimed yesterday his proposal for an airport in the Thames Estuary was not “commercially viable”.

Today Mr Johnson criticised the “panda-like pace” at which the Government was coming up with a solution and again rejected Heathrow expansion. "
