THE final phase of the Old Vinyl Factory regeneration site in Hayes was approved at Hillingdon Council’s first-ever virtual planning committee.

One Vinyl Square is being developed by Joseph Homes and is one of the final pieces in transforming the former EMI factory in Blyth Road.

In addition to 134 homes, the plans allow for commercial space, cycle and car parking.

The homes will be a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom flats and three-bedroom maisonettes, for sale, shared ownership or affordable rent.

One Vinyl Square pays homage to the site’s musical history, including a sculpture of Nipper the Dog, the emblem of His Master’s Voice.

The site extends across 17 acres of Hayes town centre. Close to the station. It was acquired by regeneration specialists U+I in 2011.

Originally built in 1907 for EMI, where records by The Beatles and Pink Floyd were pressed, The Old Vinyl Factory is a mix of restored art deco offices, homes, innovation and educational hubs, shops, cafés, restaurants and a climbing centre.

The Gramophone, a cinema run by Really Local Group, will feature a permanent, historic EMI exhibition.
