Until the late 19th century Hillingdon was mainly rural and comprised small hamlets and villages. In the early 20th century a great deal of development took place due to the building of roads, railways and the introduction of industry to the area. It was not until 1965 however that the old urban districts of Hayes and Harlington, Ruislip-Northwood, West Drayton, Yiewsley and Borough of Uxbridge were merged creating the Borough that is now Hillingdon. Hillingdon is currently undergoing several large development projects, such as the transformation of former RAF site, St Andrew’s Park.
Get Planning and Architecture has an excellent knowledge of the Borough of Hillingdon having completed a variety of projects, both large and small in the area and throughout London. These include residential, commercial and retail developments.

Hillingdon is the westernmost borough of Greater London. According to an article in The Telegraph online, the average house price currently stands at around £398 754. Between 2005 and 2015 house prices were estimated to have grown 57 percent and are set to rise further. Despite this a similar property in London would cost far more. It not only has good transport links into central London but also offers more value for your money. Making it an ideal investment for first time buyers, investors and families requiring more space.
The team at Get Planning and Architecture feels it important to keep abreast of recent development and planning news within each Borough.
In December 2014, the first phase of the £12.3 development at Hillingdon Hospital was completed, with the opening of a new state-of-the-art medical unit.
In other news, the mixed use redevelopment located at the Old Vinyl Factory in Hayes is well underway. It is a joint venture that will offer 550,000 sq ft of offices, 642 homes, shopping space, a music venue along with a multiplex cinema planned by Vue Entertainment. There will also be space designated for restaurants and leisure facilities.
It is proposed that listed buildings on the site be reused and that long term tenants are attracted. The goal is to provide around 4,000 new jobs with an emphasis on supporting new businesses, boosting the local economy, providing affordable housing and creating a thriving working and living environment.
The development was given planning permission in April 2013. The first phase of the development is under construction and the second phase, which will see the constuction of 213 homes at the ‘Boiler House’ and ‘Material Store’ sites, was given the green light in July 2014, after contracts were signed between Cathedral and HUB.
