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 4.3 acre site at Millbrook Park, Mill Hill has been bought by Taylor Wimpey for the development of 89 new homes.
The sale, completed last week (1st May). is part of the continuing 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.
In addition, the two public parks are set to be finished this year adding to the sense of place and community.
Rob Barton, Land Director at St. Modwen said: “Millbrook Park is really flourishing now with four separate housebuilders on site and the parks nearing completion. We look forward to this next new phase and working with Taylor Wimpey again following the success of their first phase of this major regeneration project to build a major new community in Mill Hill.”
Millbrook Park, Mill Hill is part of the Ministry of Defence’s ‘Project MoDEL’. VINCI St. Modwen (VSM), a 50/50 joint venture 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).
