Housing secretary Robert Jenrick will not call in Inland Homes’ plans for the 514-home Hillingdon Gardens scheme in west London
The planning application for Hillingdon Gardens at the former Master Brewer site will not be called in by the housing secretary.
The site has been the subject of third-party requests to call in for determination by Jenrick but it has been decided that the application for 514 homes can be determined at a local level by the Greater London Authority.
The site was approved by the Mayor of London in September 2020 and will now be subject to the signing of a Section 106 agreement.
Hillingdon Gardens plans
The plans for Hillingdon Gardens will transform a derelict former commercial site, creating a residentially led, mixed-use neighbourhood, with a network of pedestrianised areas, landscaped public squares and extensive green spaces.
The scheme will deliver 182 new affordable homes alongside significant contributions towards local infrastructure improvements and biodiversity.
The Hillingdon Gardens project is part of Inland Home’s asset management division.
‘Revitalising a vacant site’
Stephen Wicks, CEO of Inland Homes, said: “The former Master Brewers site is a brownfield site that has been vacant for 11 years and is exactly the type of scheme where we can make a meaningful contribution to housing delivery in a sustainable way.
“We are pleased that the scheme has not been called in by the secretary of state. We can now actively progress delivering the scheme, which is supportive of the government’s housebuilding agenda, delivering much needed affordable homes and revitalising a vacant site.
“The Hillingdon Gardens site is part of our asset management division, where we are seeing increasing demand for our experience and skill in navigating the planning system.
“This will be an area of primary focus in the coming year and we are excited about the opportunities in this growing area of the business.”
