The latest planning for the £50m Stanwell New Start regeneration scheme follows on from phase one where work started in February on 52 new homes.
The next phases will see temporary homes built after the second world war demolished at the estate before work starts on 260 one, two and three-bedroom properties for affordable rent, shared ownership and private sale. A total of 44 homes will also be built for the elderly.
Stanwell New Start is a joint partnership between Spelthorne Borough Council, Surrey County Council and London based affordable housing provider A2Dominion Group.
David Price, A2Dominion’s director of regeneration, said: “We are delighted to have been granted planning permission. We are aiming to get our detailed planning application in before the end of this year, with building work to start in spring 2011.
“Our recent success with regeneration and community work in Stanwell earned us high praise.”
Councillor Richard Smith-Ainsley, the council’s cabinet member for planning, said: “This is yet another positive step forward in the plan to regenerate this area of Stanwell and provide 21st century accommodation for our residents.
“There is still some way to go and we shall continue to work with A2Dominion and the local residents to ensure that the local community continue to be involved in the project until completion.”
Presently A2Dominion is on the hunt for contractors to deliver its £500m new build programme over the next four years.
