The Defence Infrastructure Organisation has announced it will work with Inland Homes to deliver a development brief for the site of the Defence School of Languages in Beaconsfield.
The regeneration firm operates primarily in the south east and will work with South Bucks District Council and Buckinghamshire County Council to formulate a plan for the site after the Wilton Park school changes location.
Wilton Park will then become surplus to defence requirements, and available for development. A public consultation will take place before a final decision is made.
Inland Homes owns land adjacent to the site, needed to access Wilton Park off the Pyebush roundabout.
South Bucks Council has earmarked the site as a potential residential site, opening up the possibility of a high-quality mixed-use scheme, featuring employment development, community facilities and open spaces.
DIO head of disposals south Martin Lloyd said the body “continually reviews its property holdings to ensure that only sufficient land and property is held to meet current operational requirements”.
“Future development of the Wilton Park site in Beaconsfield supports the Government’s housing agenda in providing Brownfield land for much-needed market and affordable housing. DIO is pleased to be working with Inland Homes and the local planning authorities to deliver a development brief for the site”
Inland Homes land director said the project was “very important”, and that the firm was “looking forward to creating a very special new community that integrates well with its sensitive surroundings.”
