When did the regeneration process for South Acton start?
In 1999, following consultation with the South Acton community, Ealing Council started a major investment programme on the estate. As part of this investment, Catalyst Housing Association redeveloped a number of new homes along the All Saints Road.
In 2010, Acton Gardens LLP were chosen by Ealing Council and local residents to carry out the rest of the regeneration of the South Acton estate. Acton Gardens LLP is the joint venture partnership between London and Quadrant Housing Trust (L&Q) and Countryside Properties (UK) Limited.
