RAF de­vel­op­ment takes shape

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THIS is the first look at how plans for 249 flats at the for­mer RAF Uxbridge site might look.

De­vel­op­ers VINCI and St. Mod­wen, who have teamed up the for the ven­ture, de­scribe them­selves as the UK’s “lead­ing re­gen­er­a­tion spe­cial­ist”.

They have sub­mit­ted a plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion to Hilling­don Coun­cil for a va­ri­ety of homes, from stu­dio flats up to three-bed­room apart­ments and in­tend to of­fer a range of tenures, from af­ford­able to pri­vate sale and pri­vately-rented homes.

The for­mer RAF base has out­line plan­ning per­mis­sion for 1,300 homes over­all, 160 of which are al­ready built on plots cur­rently be­ing de­vel­oped by house­builders Charles Church and Per­sim­mon Homes.

St An­drew’s Park is also home to the Bat­tle of Bri­tain Bunker – com­mem­o­rat­ing 75 years this sum­mer since the cru­cial aerial bat­tle took place – as well as the Grade I-listed Hilling­don House.

Rob Bar­ton, residential land di­rec­tor at St. Mod­wen, said: “We’re look­ing at a large num­ber, and a wide va­ri­ety, of homes here. Of­fer­ing some­thing for ev­ery­one with some af­ford­able, some to be sold and some to be pri­vately rented.”
