Plans approved – MoD site in Hounslow gets planning approval

Planning permission has been granted for a mixed-use development at Calvary Barracks.

Formerly a Ministry of Defence site in Hounslow, there are now plans to build a vibrant community. 1,525 new homes, commercial space, and over 10 acres of open space all form part of the plans.

Nish Malde, interim chief executive officer at Inland Homes, commented: “Cavalry Barracks is an exceptional development site with its historical significance, excellent location and sheer scale of opportunity. We are delighted to have received a resolution to grant planning permission on behalf of the project investor to secure additional new housing for Hounslow, in a way that celebrates the site’s rich history and builds on its legacy for the whole community benefit. We look forward to seeing the next chapter in the Cavalry Barracks story come to life.”


The new masterplan

Inland Homes developed the plans on behalf of the project’s investor with architects tp bennett and planning consultants Planning Potential.

The former Ministry of Defence site is one of the largest remaining undeveloped brownfield sites in London. 

The redevelopment will bring 2,700 square metres of commercial space for shops, cafes, workspace and community uses. 

A new public park twice the size of Trafalgar Square, with sports pitches, play areas and green open space will be included. 

Chris Wieszczycki, principal director at tp bennett said: “The reimagined Cavalry Barracks scheme will retain and convert the historical buildings into new homes, creating a community with a real sense of history. Our design is for a sustainable, biodiverse neighbourhood, grounded in the rich heritage of this ex-military site. The former parade ground will be transformed into an attractive piece of green, open land with space for sports, recreation and play to be enjoyed by residents and the public. The scheme presents a unique opportunity to tell the story of a rich past while creating a sustainable, high-quality environment for the future.”

Stuart Slatter, director at Planning Potential said: “Engaging with the local community and working closely with key stakeholders has been central to evolving the exciting proposals for Cavalry Barracks. This has resulted in a scheme that not only meets Hounslow’s aspirations for the site, but also responds to the local community needs and is supported by stakeholders such as the Hounslow Chamber of Commerce, Sport England and Historic England.”
