Second phase for old council HQ
Mon 5 August 2019, 10:26 am
Hounslow Councilís former Civic Centre building has been handed over to developers for the second phase of works to create further homes at the site.
The council moved to its new headquarters, Hounslow House, at the top of Bath Road, earlier this year and now the old Civic Centre has been fully decommissioned for works.
Housing association Notting Hill Genesis and Bouygues UK will start work on Phase Two of the redevelopment of the site, which will include the demolition of the Civic Centre and multi-storey car park before building further homes.
Notting Hill Genesis delivered 160 homes last summer during Phase One, known as The Staging Post, with the first residents moving in before Christmas.
The completed development will provide 940 homes, and this will offer 50% social housing at affordable rents.
Hounslow Council leader, Councillor Steve Curran, said: “There is some sadness for those of us who have worked or visited the old Civic Centre over the years, but the release of this site allowed us to build a smaller, more modern, fit-for-purpose and environmentally friendly headquarters just down the road, as well as delivering more much-needed housing for the borough.”
