£10 million grant for Grange Farm rebuild

The first phase of a major redevelopment of Grange Farm estate is a step closer with the award of £10 million from the government.
It means that, subject to planning permission, the council can go ahead with the building of 68 new council rented homes and 21 properties for shared-ownership purchase.
All of them will be affordable, with the rented properties offered at less than the mayor's recommended affordable rate.
Competing with authorities from across the country, Harrow won the maximum amount from the national infrastructure fund that kick-starts housing projects.
The new Grange Farm will see more than 500 homes built on the estate over the next five years, in a choice of flats and houses of up to four bedrooms.
All properties will have their own private outdoor space and a tenth will be 25% larger and designed with disabled people in mind.
