Taylor Wimpey are currently in the process of preparing a detailed planning application for a new residential development of 16 family homes on land to the south of the Leavesden development, off Main Road in Biggin Hill.
This is a previously developed area of brownfield land which formally accommodated the Married Quarters associated with the historic Biggin Hill Airport.
The adjacent development known as 'Leavesden' was completed by Taylor Wimpey in 2008. An extra parcel of land was included in this purchase and was initially intended to house a Heritage Centre or Museum to commemorate the military role of RAF Biggin Hill.
Bromley Council have since granted planning permission for a Heritage Centre on a different site, allowing this parcel of land to be brought forward for housing.
London Biggin Hill Airport is a prime feature of the local area, having played a significant role in the Battle of Britain during the Second World War.
