Application for new homes at RAF Uxbridge

A planning application for 85 homes at St Andrew’s Park in Uxbridge has been submitted to Hillingdon Council, with the authority expected to make a decision on granting approval during summer 2016.
Developer St. Modwen is proposing to bring forward the development of a new community at the park with the creation of homes in a mix of sizes and styles, including 44 three and four-bedroom family houses as well as one and two-bedroom apartments, on the site of the former RAF Uxbridge base.
Built by the company’s housebuilding division St. Modwen Homes, the new properties would have their own parking spaces and would sit on the edge of a new 16-ha park.
St. Modwen Homes’ technical director Robin Smith said the company hoped to begin work during autumn 2016, adding: "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.”
St Andrew’s Park has outline planning permission for 1,300 homes. Around 270 homes have been completed by Charles Church and Persimmon Homes, and a new school, the John Locke Academy Primary School, opened in 2014.
St. Modwen secured planning consent at the end of 2015 for a further 249 homes on the so called ‘triangle site’, to the east of Uxbridge’s town centre, and has submitted plans for an office park in the area, which the developer expects will create up to 1,000 jobs.
