Next phase for St An­drew’s up for scru­tiny

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

PLANS for 85 homes at St An­drew’s Park, Uxbridge, have been sub­mit­ted to the Lon­don Bor­ough of Hilling­don.

The homes are the lat­est phase of the new com­mu­nity be­ing built on the for­mer RAF Uxbridge base by St Mod­wen and would be de­vel­oped by the com­pany’s house­build­ing di­vi­sion St Mod­wen Homes.

The homes will in­clude a mix of sizes and styles to re­flect the new com­mu­nity at St An­drew’s Park, in­clud­ing 44 three and four-bed­room fam­ily houses as well as one and two-bed­room apart­ments and maisonettes.

All the homes will have their own park­ing spa­ces as well as lock­able cy­cle stor­age and ac­cess to vis­i­tor park­ing.

The homes will sit on the edge of the new 40 acre park at the heart of the new com­mu­nity and will in­clude an el­e­gant cres­cent of fam­ily houses over­look­ing the park.

Over­all, St An­drew’s Park has out­line plan­ning per­mis­sion for 1,300 homes.

St Mod­wen se­cured plan­ning con­sent at the end of 2015 for a fur­ther 249 homes on the ‘tri­an­gle site’ ad­ja­cent to the com­mer­cial heart of the new devel­op­ment, to the east of Uxbridge’s town cen­tre, which will in­clude a mix of apart­ments for pri­vate rent and pri­vate sale.

In ad­di­tion, some 270 homes have al­ready been com­pleted by Charles Church and Per­sim­mon Homes at the devel­op­ment.

Else­where at St An­drew’s Park the new com­mu­nity is con­tin­u­ing to grow.

The new John Locke Academy Pri­mary School opened in 2014 and a new en­trance and road put in. The new park will start to take shape and the Grade I Hilling­don House is set to be re­de­vel­oped as a restau­rant and of­fice space.

St Mod­wen has also sub­mit­ted its plans for the new of­fice park next to the town cen­tre, which is in­tended to de­liver up to 1,000 jobs.

Robin Smith, Tech­ni­cal Di­rec­tor at St. Mod­wen Homes said:

“We’ve worked closely with our ar­chi­tects to de­sign a va­ri­ety of homes that will suit peo­ple on all stages of the prop­erty lad­der, from first time buy­ers to grow­ing fam­i­lies and downsizers.

What’s more, all of our homes have been de­signed with our phi­los­o­phy of light and height, mean­ing each one will be built with large win­dows and high ceil­ings as stan­dard, cre­at­ing the bright and open liv­ing spa­ces that are so pop­u­lar amongst our home­own­ers.

“Hope­fully, we’ll be­gin work on these new homes at St Andrews Park dur­ing the Au­tumn this year.”

Rob Bar­ton, res­i­den­tial land di­rec­tor at St Mod­wen added: “This ap­pli­ca­tion is the lat­est in a se­ries of ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ments be­ing brought for­ward at St An­drew’s Park as the new com­mu­nity takes shape.

“Along­side the new homes al­ready on-site, we’re look­ing for­ward to start­ing work on the new apart­ments as part of the town cen­tre ex­ten­sion later this year, and to open­ing the green cen­tre­piece of the new com­mu­nity – the park it­self.”

A de­ci­sion on the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion by the Lon­don Bor­ough of Hilling­don is an­tic­i­pated in the Sum­mer of 2016.
