Willmott Residential’s expansion in London has stepped up a gear after Barnet Council approved plan to build 188 homes in Mill Hill.

Its Prime Place development arm will now build 159 homes for private sale, together with 29 homes for affordable rent, on a 2.7 acre site at Millbrook Park.

The scheme, designed by architects Broadway Malyan, will form part of a new north London community earmarked to provide over 2,000 homes in a landscaped parkland setting, together with shops, offices and a new primary school.

Residents will benefit from underground parking and a low carbon district heating system.

Brian Brady, managing director Prime Place, said the scheme underlined Willmott Residential’s growing presence, developing homes for sale through Prime Place and for private rent through be:here.

Willmott Residential now boasts 5,000 units on site or in planning using its model to develop tenure mixes concurrently. This includes acting as lead developer on the 1,176 home regeneration of Aberfeldy Village in Tower Hamlets and Brentford FC’s masterplan for a 20,000 seat stadium and 900 homes.

Elsewhere, Prime Place is working with Westminster City Council to create new leisure facilities at no cost to the council through cross-funding afforded by the creation of 156 homes, while Be:here is finalising 118 homes for private rent at the site of the Old Vinyl Factory in Hayes and has planning permission for nearly 600 homes in Barking.
