RAF development takes shape
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.”
