Construction Enquirer News Construction pipeline expands with series of new schemes
Inland Homes has submitted planning applications and secured land for potential construction of 1,650 homes.
Two major brownfield planning applications have gone in for site in Staines, Middlesex and Basildon, Essex.
The company has also secured three new brownfield opportunities in the London borough of Barking and Dagenham.
In Staines Inland is looking to transform the site of the Former Telephone Exchange and Masonic Centre.
The scheme, designed by Assael Architecture, will provide 206 residential units across two buildings of 13 and 15 storeys, including 94 affordable homes, landscaped amenity, extensive public realm improvements and enhanced pedestrian links.
Inland is working with Homes England in Basildon to create 700 new dwellings at Gardiners Park Village on a 54-acre brownfield site.
The application will include the provision of a site for a new school and up to 25,000m² of flexible business space designed for start-up companies.
In Barking and Dagenham Inland has secured three new brownfield opportunities, which together will provide over 800 new homes.
Planning applications for these sites will be submitted during the first half of 2021.
Stephen Wicks, Chief Executive said: “Our land and planning teams have been extremely active during this year to bring forward these significant brownfield sites for development of over 1,650 homes.
“We welcome the Government’s support for the industry during these difficult times. Inland are responding to the UK’s urgent demand for new homes, supporting efforts to increase affordable housing and create wider economic activity.
“Working with build to rent funds, housing associations as well as providing homes for sale at the affordable end of the market, we have strong demand for our well-located, attractively designed developments”.
