Defence unit in housing partnership
Under the plans, Inland Homes will work on the site to deliver a high quality, residentially led mixed-use development scheme on the site.
Although no location has been confirmed for the new Defence School of Languages, it will not be at Wilton Park and so the land is surplus to the DIO’s 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,” explained Martin Lloyd, the DIO’s head of disposals for the south.
A public consultation on the future of the site will begin “in due course”, the DIO said.
