Beechcroft acquires Wilton Park site in Beaconsfield

| May 7, 2024

Beechcroft has acquired the Wilton Park site in Beaconsfield for residential development.

The 75 acre site at Wilton Park, Beaconsfield was acquired from administrators acting on behalf of Inland Homes for residential development.

In 2019, Inland Homes was granted outline planning consent to develop up to 350 open market and affordable homes on the site; an estate which once belonged to the monks of Burnham Abbey and more recently to the Ministry of Defence.

Part of the site has already been developed by Bewley Homes but Beechcroft plans to regenerate the remainder of the site, demolishing the existing, unsightly, tower block and creating new, open market, affordable and retirement homes for the over 55s along with community facilities.

Chris Thompson, Managing Director at Beechcroft, said: ‘We are delighted to announce the acquisition of the Wilton Park site after four months of negotiation.

The delivery of new homes – and particularly affordable homes – in Beaconsfield is important and we look forward to creating high quality housing along with attractive, informal, open spaces and community facilities. Planning has already been granted for a new nursery building and a community centre/café. We anticipate the scheme, which will be completed within a five-to-seven-year timescale, will bring many benefits to the local area.

We are particularly keen to secure the long-term future of Beaconsfield Town Football Club. The club was due to move to formal pitches at Wilton Park which would have been leased on an annual basis but by relocating the pitches to Glory Hill, we will be able to transfer ownership of the new pitches to the club. This is a move that is supported by club members and parents of children who use the club.

Beechcroft, founded in 1984, is currently celebrating 40 years of creating high-quality housing, including developments designed exclusively for over 55s and located in some of the most attractive villages and market towns in the southern counties.
