Views sought on Winsor and Newton Factory site development
A developer is calling for people’s views on plans to build up to 189 homes on the site of a disused factory.
Barratt Homes was granted planning permission for its outline plans for the former Winsor and Newton factory and office building in Whitefriars Avenue in July this year.
Proposals include the demolition of the existing buildings to make way for up to 189 new homes and employment space.
The developer will be holding a public consultation event at the factory on Monday November 11, from 3pm to 7.30pm.
Development manager James Crawt said: “Our public consultation gives residents a chance to find out the detail of the scheme following the outline approval earlier this year.
“We’ve paid a great deal of care and attention to the design of the buildings so they reflect the history of the site as well as the new creative studios which will be provided.
“Quality landscaping accompanies some bold design as well as providing a substantial new area of public open space. We’d like to know what residents think of our initial thoughts and ideas.”
The historic Winsor and Newton factory will be saved and refurbished for business use which the developers hope will create up to 130 jobs in the creative industries.
At the Harrow Borough Council planning meeting earlier this year it was announced the developers with contribute £180,000 towards education facilities in the area.
