A2Dominion and Assael Architecture secure planning consent for 400 canalside homes in west London

A2Dominion and Assael Architecture have been given the go-ahead by the London Borough of Hillingdon for 400 new homes on a brownfield site in Hayes.


The project is part of a wider masterplan that includes the neighbouring Crown Trading Estate site.

The development will focus on affordable family homes, and will offer a range of new dwellings, including one- and two-bedroom apartments with projecting or inset balconies, three-bedroom duplexes, and four-bedroom townhouses. 

It will also feature electric car parking spaces, biodiverse green roofs with renewable energy in the form of PV panels, ASHP hybrid heating strategy, and over 1,300 sq m of commercial space.

In addition, the scheme sees a large amount of additional public amenities being introduced in the form of parks, lawns, seating and gardens, with the landscape and public realm designed in partnership with the Crown Trading Estate site to ensure a cohesive place.

The development at Clayton Road also achieves public connectivity to the Grand Union Canal.

Danny Lynch, director of land and development at A2Dominion, said: “Having worked with Assael on a number of excellent developments in recent years, we were always confident in its ability to create a design that best utilised the space around Clayton Road. 

“Everything that we envisaged in these plans, from the new canalside access to the high-quality designs of the homes themselves, is there. 

“This scheme will give a real lift to the area, and provide excellent homes and facilities for a diverse mix of people, including local families and young professionals.”

Tim Chapman-Cavanagh, director at Assael Architecture, commented: “It is always a pleasure to work with A2Dominion, bringing forward this type of regeneration project that offers significant benefits to the local area and much-needed new homes. 

“Working closely with Hillingdon Borough Council, we have collectively designed a scheme that aligns with its local aspirations, and links well with the adjacent Crown Trading Estate development. 

“As one of our key objectives for the design, we’re proud to be part of the process that will see the community and developing area reconnected to the important Grand Union Canal."
