The former RAF base in Uxbridge is continuing its transformation into a thriving new community with the announcement that the latest tranche of residential development will be undertaken by St. Modwen Homes.

Between 75 and 85 homes are planned for the plot, which covers more than three acres and will include a range of accommodation from one-bed apartments to four bed family houses.

As a whole, St. Andrew’s Park has outline planning permission for 1,300 homes, with individual plots being developed by Charles Church and Persimmon Homes. Some 160 homes have already been completed.

St. Andrew’s Park has also already welcomed the new John Locke Academy school and work is well underway to establish the 45-acre public park. A detailed planning application to build an office park which could deliver 1,000 jobs has also been submitted for approval.

A further detailed residential planning application has been submitted to Hillingdon Council for 249 homes, for the ‘triangle’ plot adjacent to the commercial heart of St. Andrew’s Park.

The site is also home to the Battle of Britain Bunker which is commemorating 75 years this summer since the crucial battle took place, as well as being the location of the Grade 1 listed Hillingdon House which is currently on the market.

Rob Barton, Residential Land Director at St. Modwen, said: “St. Modwen Homes developing this latest plot builds on a series of major steps forward for St. Andrew’s Park as a new community and a new place to live, work and relax.”

Guy Gusterson, Managing Director at St. Modwen Homes said: “St. Modwen Homes is committed to delivering high quality, desirable new homes across the UK. We take a design-led approach to all our new homes, building properties with higher than average ceilings and large windows to create bright and spacious living areas that really stand out against other new build homes.

“St. Andrews Park is a beautiful new development with significant historic relevance and we’re very much looking forward to delivering the next residential phase.”
