Over the summer HTA played host to a number of organised site tours of Acton Gardens, the regeneration of the South Acton estate, for Urban Design London, NLA West London On Location and most recently with the DCLG that included a masterplanning workshop on site.
The DCLG hosted the masterplanning workshop on site at Acton Gardens Phase 5, designed by HTA Design. The event included a number of representatives from local authorities, developers and architects to showcase case studies and to share our collective experience on:
- Approaches to masterplanning
- Procuring masterplanners
- Involvement of residents and community; and
- Involvement of stakeholders
The workshop was concluded with a site tour around the South Acton Estate, including the construction of HTA Design's scheme for Phase 5 consisting of 271 new homes designed as a non-continuous perimeter block around a central courtyard at grade. The heights generally ranging from 5 to 9 storeys with a 12 storey marker building acting a gateway into the new Acton Gardens regeneration masterplan.
