Most of the undeveloped parts of former RAF Locking, now known as Locking Parklands, are owned by Homes England. Their role is to accelerate the delivery of housing and ensure more people have access to better homes in the right places.
Working with us and St Modwen Developments, they’re bringing forward new infrastructure and new homes and ancillary facilities. They’ve also part funded the North South Link Road which will open up future phases of development with £5m from their Local Authority Accelerated Construction Fund.
A further £5m funding from the same fund will also help us bring forward the delivery of new homes on part of our land to the north of Locking Parklands.
The land will deliver 425 homes in the first phase built using modern methods of construction and to modern energy-efficient standards. The appointment of a developer is expected in Spring 2020. For more information about appointing a developer read the commissioning plan report.
