The proposed mixed use scheme at the former Nestle factory in Hayes has achieved planning committee approval, subject to the Section 106 and planning conditions being finalised. This pioneering development will help meet the challenge faced by London of creating new homes, coupled with the need for employment opportunities.

Hillingdon Council ruled in favour of the scheme which will be delivered by SEGRO and Barratt London and will see around 1,300 new homes neighbouring 230,000 sq ft of modern light industrial space.

SEGRO is responsible for the industrial element and Barratt London will be responsible for delivering the homes and community space on the site.

Alan Holland, SEGRO’s Business Director of Greater London, said:

“We are delighted to have reached this milestone in the journey of delivering the jobs and homes that are needed. It is the first time that an industrial property company has created a vision that will deliver modern light industrial space alongside a high quality residential scheme and we’re proud that we’re the pioneers for this.

“We look forward to working with Barratt London and the local council to discharge the conditions to enable us to begin on site to deliver the employment space and create the jobs for the local community.”

Matt Calladine, Regional Land and Development Director for Barratt London, said:

“We look forward to continuing our discussions with all stakeholders to ensure this development delivers the transformational impact that the exceptional site deserves. Reaching this stage in the planning process has been enormously gratifying for the entire team, who have put so much effort into the design and vision of over 1,300 new homes that will be a much needed addition to the neighbourhood.”

When built and occupied the Nestlé development will boost the local economy by up to £130m GVA and the residents in the new homes will boost retail expenditure in the region of £7.5m - £10m each year.*

The former Nestle factory that once produced chocolate and coffee, is a feature of the local community and the proposed plans have been designed to honour the heritage of the site. There are three hectares of new public spaces, including a public plaza at the heart of the development, named after Eugen Sandow, the man who built the factory in 1913.

The scheme will also deliver other benefits, ranging from a 1.3 km public trim trail to a redeveloped canal frontage that will be accessible, to all to a coffee shop in the Canteen building. There will also be improvements made to the local road junctions including the Bulls Bridge Roundabout. Sustainability will be at the heart of the development and community spaces, with 2000 cycle spaces, electric vehicle charging points and extensive landscaping.

The development will bring employment to the area too, with 350 jobs during the construction phase, and around 500 permanent jobs created by the employment space delivered by SEGRO.

Working with Brunel University and Uxbridge College, SEGRO and Barratt London will deliver comprehensive skills training packages to ensure that the local people are ready to apply for the jobs generated by the scheme. In addition to this, there will be significant opportunities for apprentices across the trades.

A new supply chain initiative will also be developed to ensure that the smaller businesses and enterprises in and around Hillingdon will be able to compete for construction contracts.

The 30 acre site, which SEGRO acquired in 2015, is in a prime location for business and residents. It is less than a mile from junction 3 of the M4 motorway which offers easy access to the UK motorway network for regional distribution and to central London for urban logistics operators. It is also next to the Hayes and Harlington railway station which will become a Crossrail station in 2019.

Since SEGRO and Barratt London began the planning process in 2016, they have worked together to engage with the local community on three separate consultation events. In June 2016, over 200 members of the community attended an open day hosted at the site and shared their views and suggestions on the proposed regeneration of the formerly derelict site. They were able to have a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the site with a former Nestle employee.
