Second phase of landmark Hornchurch development to launch in May

Bellway London’s St George’s Park development in Hornchurch ..

Construction work is underway on the second phase of a landmark new housing development which is transforming a former hospital site in Hornchurch. Bellway London is building 356 homes at St George’s Park, a collection of houses and apartments taking shape on land off Suttons Lane.

Previously occupied by the former St George’s Hospital before its closure in 2012, the 29-acre site was sold to Bellway in 2018 for around £40 million – the largest NHS land sale at the time. Bellway is delivering 194 homes in phase one at St George’s Park and will build a further 162 homes in phase two.

The first selection of new homes from the second phase will be released for sale in May.

Emma Hamlett, Sales Director for Bellway London, said: “The newest phase of homes at St George’s Park will be a mix of houses and apartments located in the western part of the site. The homes here will be accessed via Spitfire Approach, one of many streets at the development named in recognition of the site’s past as an RAF base and of Hornchurch’s rich aviation history.

“This heritage will be preserved for future generations through the RAF Hornchurch Heritage Centre, which will soon open in Suttons House. These premises were donated by Bellway to the Hornchurch Aerodrome Society to enable the group’s vision for an RAF museum on the site to become a reality.

“As part of the development of the former hospital site, a new £17 million health centre has been commissioned on adjacent land to meet the healthcare needs of local residents. After being dormant for six years, this once-derelict site is now at the heart of a major transformation delivering much-needed new homes and community facilities to Hornchurch.”

Phase one at St George’s Park was launched in November 2019. A selection of two-bedroom apartments and three, four and five-bedroom houses are currently available, with prices ranging from £389,995 to £850,000.
