A further phase of a former army barracks is set to be redeveloped into new homes with the sale of a residential plot by The Inglis Consortium, a partnership between St. Modwen, VINCI, Annington Property and the London Borough of Barnet. The 4.89 acre site at Millbrook Park, Mill Hill has been bought by Taylor Wimpey for the development of 114 new homes.
The sale is the fifth phase in the transformation of the former RAF Inglis Barracks in Mill Hill into a new sustainable community. It has an overall outline planning consent for 2,174 new homes as well as a primary school, a GP surgery, local shops, a district energy centre and almost 14.8 acres of open spaces with a new public park.
The first phases have been almost fully delivered with both Taylor Wimpey and Linden Homes having completed houses, which are now occupied. Cala Homes and Countryside Properties are developing further phases with award-winning designs.
Rob Barton, Land Director at St. Modwen commented: “With our partners we are creating a sustainable new community on this former brownfield site. We are pleased that following Taylor Wimpey’s success development in the first phase that it has invested further in Millbrook Park to deliver more quality new homes.”
Millbrook Park, Mill Hill is part of the Ministry of Defence’s ‘Project MoDEL’. VINCI St. Modwen (VSM), a partnership between St. Modwen and its partner VINCI PLC, was appointed by the MoD in 2006 for Project MoDEL, which saw existing London-based MoD units from six former RAF sites relocated to an integrated site at RAF Northolt. The six sites were then freed up for development for residential, commercial and community uses. VSM was charged with securing planning consent for developing the six disposal sites and delivering new facilities at RAF Northolt. Subsequently, VSM sold four of these sites and retained two for development: RAF Uxbridge (St. Andrew’s Park) and Inglis Barracks (Millbrook Park).
