A planning application is to be put forward to council bosses for a new 377 home scheme at the site of the old Master Brewer Hotel.

The land, off Freezeland Way, had been earmarked for a new Tesco Store, retail units, hotel and 125 new homes. This was approved in 2014. Meyer Homes, the owner of the Former Master Brewer site, now being referred to by the company as Hillingdon Gateway, has released a detailed brochure on its new plans.

They comprise:

• 377 new homes (59% will be “family homes”)
• 1 new retail unit located on the south west corner of the site
• Affordable workspaces
• Circa 2,000sq.m communal amenity and play space and 1,600sq.m of
private garden space
• Building heights ranging from 9 storeys in the north west corner of the site to 5 storeys in the centre

  • 215 car parking spaces – including 201 Residential (including 35 blue badge bays) + 12 commercial/visitor and 2 car club

The previous scheme for a Tesco store which was granted permission in August 2014 was for:

• 125 new homes of 1 to 5 storeys
• A Tesco store (c.3,543sq.m)
• 3 retail units (total c. 1,037sq.m)
• A 70 bedroom hotel
• Circa 2,300sq.m community amenity and play space
• 510sq.m of private garden space

This development would have provided 297 parking spaces (179 associated with the retail use, 99 spaces associated with the new homes and 19 associated with the hotel).

Meyer Homes stated in its plans: “Given the site’s history and importance, we recognise that any plans for the site may be of significant interest to local people and over the past few months, the team has been working with the closest neighbours to the site and stakeholder groups in order to develop our plans.”

It said: “As you are no doubt aware, this site has long been the subject of development proposals including the scheme which was approved in 2014 for a new Tesco Store, retail units, hotel and 125 new homes. Since purchasing the site from Tesco/Spenhill in 2015, Meyer Homes has been considering the most appropriate approach to the site in the context of the increasing need for new homes in Hillingdon and across the capital.

“With this in mind, Meyer Homes has appointed a project team with a wealth of experience and expertise in creating new and vibrant environments where people live, work and enjoy themselves.

“This team has, over the past few months, been working with the closest neighbours to the site and stakeholder groups in order to develop the plans. The proposals on display today are the result of these discussions alongside the feedback from the Local Planning Authority, Hillingdon and the Greater London Authority (GLA).”

The developers aim to submit the plans this summer and anticipate a decision by late this year.

Meyer Homes is a residential development company that is taking forward 14 sites acquired from Tesco subsidiary Spenhill in October 2015 to develop housing plans.
