Planning applications for two significant redevelopments in Hayes have been submitted to Hillingdon Council.
SEGRO and Barratt London plan to create new homes, employment and new amenities for residents on the site of the former Nestle factory, which closed in 2014 when Nestle moved their production facilities to Derbyshire.
The project could deliver 1,381 new homes, over 22,000sq m of modern, sustainable industrial workspace, dedicated spaces for community use including a day nursery, open up access to the canal and parks, and create up to 530 jobs on-site.
The developers have been consulting with residents for a year and say they are aiming to retain elements of the site, such as the art deco factory facade, and respect its heritage while delivering urban renewal on an area that has been closed to the public for more than 100 years.
The Access Self Storage site at 1 Nestles Avenue is also the subject of an application to create 165 new homes, offices, a cafe and basement self-storage to the south of Hayes and Harlington station.
