A planning application has been submitted to renovate and redevelopment two vacant buildings - one of which is burnt - on High Street, Acton Town.

Rhodes Architects LLP, representing Cliveden Holdco Ltd, proposes to combine properties 29 and 31 on High Street, to create five residential units, one commercial space on the ground floor, a basement and a cycle store.

Both premises are currently vacant, with number 31 being burnt out after a fire back in 2022.

Previously, the architecture and planning company proposed a four-storey building with six self-contained flats in 2023, but later withdrew the proposal.

In January 2024, Rhodes Architects LLP sought pre-application advice, which it says led to adjustments to better reflect local housing needs.

The revised plan includes an expanded cycle store with 14 parking spaces and residents' lockers, an enlarged retail unit due to the removal of the ground floor flat and a three-bedroom unit on the top floor to meet local housing demand.

Rhodes Architects LLP says: "The internal layouts have been designed to create well-considered, liveable spaces within an existing footprint. 

The site location does offer potential tenants easy walking distance from town centre amenities."

It adds: "The planned modifications will not lead to a loss of privacy or create a situation where neighbouring residential units are overlooked. 

Furthermore, due to the site's central location within the town, it is common to have such close proximity between properties facing each other."

The application is in the consultation phase and can be found here.
