Sparrow Farm Drive proposes 25 homes along with a community centre and playground for Feltham in the London Borough of Hounslow.
The new light and spacious affordable family homes are arranged efficiently around a landscaped courtyard and include both flats and houses. The scheme, which has planning approval, is located in the local centre of the Sparrow Farm Drive estate, replacing a car park and dilapidated social club. The design proposal integrates with the neighbourhood but rises to mark the local centre parade.
The proposed Community Centre, the focus of which is the community hall, will breathe new life into the heart of the estate providing a wide range of community events. The project will also provide wider estate improvements with a new children’s playground, extra parking, landscape improvements and tree planting.
‘We have been very happy with the commitment the KCA have shown to the project & the way they managed the work delivering on time against a tight programme. They have managed to maximise our development proposals despite the local constraints.’ Andrew Smith, Head of Housing Development, LB Hounslow.
