Hammersmith & Fulham Council have appointed Higgins Partnerships as the construction contractor to build the new homes on the former site of Hartopp & Lannoy Point, following a thorough selection process that involved estate residents.
Higgins Partnerships took over the site on 31 March 2023. From April to August 2023, they will carry out preparatory works on the site, in line with the details of the planning consent.
We will be holding a “meet the contractor” day for residents to talk to Higgins Partnerships and council staff and ask any questions. Further details about this event will be sent to residents and published here soon.

We will continue to work with the Aintree Estate Residents’ Steering Group and the contractor to monitor the work on site.
The project will deliver 134 new energy efficient new homes, the majority of which will be low cost (84%) and is due to be completed in late 2025.
If you have any queries, please contact our project team at: HLP@lbhf.gov.uk
We have been working with the residents’ steering group to procure a contractor who will build the new homes. A panel including Aintree estate residents conducted contractor interviews in November 2022 as part of the procurement process.
We expect a contractor to be appointed by the end of March 2023, with start on site anticipated Summer 2023. UKPN have been on site to do works to move the sub-station ahead of construction.
Hammersmith & Fulham Council has been granted planning consent to build 134 new high-quality homes on the former site of Hartopp Point and Lannoy Point. The plans for the new development were approved by the Planning and Development Committee of H&F Council on Wednesday 21 September.
Across the development on the Aintree Estate, 84 per cent of the new homes will be genuinely affordable and local residents in housing need will get first priority to secure one of the new affordable rent homes being built. The new homes will be built ‘Passivhaus’ classic standards – the most energy efficient standards of homes in the UK. Read our news bulletin for more information about the new homes and to watch a flythrough video of the proposals.
The procurement process to select a building contractor for the project is underway and expected to complete in Winter 2022, for construction to begin next Spring.
Aintree Estate residents are invited to join the ongoing meetings of the Residents’ Steering Group. For more information please contact HLP@lbhf.gov.uk.
The project team submitted the planning application for the redevelopment of the site in May 2022, which can be viewed on the council’s website here: https://public-access.lbhf.gov.uk/online-applications using reference number 2022/01346/FR3.
The project team has been finalising the designs based on feedback received from the third stage of consultation held in November. The planning application is due to be submitted in May 2022 and we expect to hear a decision on the Planning team in Autumn 2022.
The resident steering group continue to meet and work on the next stages of the development process including procuring a contractor for the development.
If planning permission is granted, then once a contractor has been appointed a Second Notice will be issued to residents in line with the Defend Council Homes Policy. The Second Notice will include information about timing, phasing, on-site communication and complaints, and details of how residents can continue to be involved and co-produce the development.
A third project newsletter was distributed in November which included feedback from the second round consultation and details of how to continue to provide feedback.
The third round of public consultation events were held in November including online and in-person exhibitions.
Two online consultation exhibitions took place on Thursday 25 November 2021. There were also two separate online meetings for residents from Pellant Road, Chaldon Road and Williams Close.

Demolition - May 2021
The demolition of Hartopp Point and Lannoy Point is now complete and the site has been prepared for redevelopment.
The council have recently appointed an architect and project team to explore and work up proposals for new housing and open space on the site, leading up to submission of a planning application later this year.
The proposed development of the site is part of our wider effort to build 1,500 new genuinely affordable homes in the borough.
This is a key element in our pioneering Industrial Strategy, and we are determined to deliver as many genuinely affordable homes as possible in the next 10 years as we strive to make Hammersmith & Fulham the best place to live, work and socialise in Europe.
There is a need for affordable housing across the borough and we are determined to ensure the development of the site will:
- Support high-quality new housing within the Aintree Estate;
- Provide affordable housing (a minimum of 50% on the site);
- Be self-financing to protect the council’s already strained budget;
- Support thriving neighbourhoods and provide high-quality spaces; and
- Create an environmentally sustainable development.
Having adopted our Defend Council Homes policy last January, we want to communicate and consult with council housing residents (tenants and leaseholders) whose home may be affected by any development proposal. We are therefore in the process of setting up a Residents Steering Group so that residents of Aintree Estate can work with the Council and our project team on the designs to ensure that what is being built meets the needs of the local community.
As well as the Residents Steering Group we will also be holding regular public exhibitions and communicating with residents through newsletters and an interactive website to gather people’s views on the proposed designs and keep everyone up to date with how the scheme is progressing.
