The London Borough of Barnet granted outline permission in 2009 for the comprehensive, phased redevelopment of the 34 hectare site to provide a new district, named Millbrook Park. The wider plans include: 2,174 homes; a primary school with community facilities; 1,100 square metres of 'high street' retail space; 3,470 sq m of office space; an energy centre; and a new public park.
Taylor Wimpey was selected to deliver one of the next phases of the scheme: the 114-home "Phase 4A". The reported acquisition of five acres of land from the Inglis Consortium will enable work to commence on the construction of 55 three- to five-bedroom houses overlooking the Totteridge Valley to the north of the site, and an apartment building with 59 units, underground car parking and communal gardens.
"We are pleased that, following Taylor Wimpey's successful development in the first phase, that it has invested further in Millbrook Park to deliver quality new homes," said Rob Barton, land director at St Modwen, one of the partners in the Inglis Consortium, according to the Estates Gazette report.
Development under Phase 4A of the scheme is expected to commence in summer 2015.
