Plans have been submitted for a mixed-use development in Southall, west London, which would see the inclusion of 2000 new homes.

The Margarine Works Project, so called due to the former dairy product factory which operated from the site, would also include community workspace, retail and leisure space and a 0.4 hectare park.

Outline plans have now been submitted to the London Borough of Ealing. Outline consent will then be followed by a detailed planning application for the first phase of development, the firm said.

According to the firm’s developer, Montreaux Developments, the project would be split into 5 districts with “clearly defined character areas” drawing on the site’s industrial heritage. Architectural firm Assael Architecture were behind the design for the scheme, and their director, Loren Thanyakittikul, said “it was essential that the outline application captured the essence and aspirations of this new neighbourhood without being too prescriptive”.

Construction of the project is expected to take place over the next 15 years with the first completed homes due by the year 2021.
