Timeline & Next Steps
The Council and MOD are committed to engaging as widely and comprehensively as possible around plans for St George’s Barracks.
Informal consultation around the first high-level masterplan, setting out a vision for the future of St George’s Barracks, took place between 11 May and 15 June 2018.
The high-level masterplan is intended to act as a framework for development. It is not a fixed blueprint.
The Council and MOD now need to look closely at what people have said as part of the informal consultation. All of the feedback will be analysed and we will carefully consider any issues, considerations or concerns that have been raised.
The jointly prepared high-level masterplan provides illustrative zoning for the St George’s Barracks site and indicates the order in which various plots might be brought forward. It also highlights key access and road layouts, infrastructure requirements and describes the site – what it might look and feel like in broad terms. This includes preferences for density of housing and housing types.
All of the feedback received in relation to the high-level masterplan will now be used to help produce a more detailed version. Once complete, the detailed masterplan will be translated into a planning application(s) to take the redevelopment forward and help meet our aspirations for the future of the site. Once analysed, all of the responses received as part of the informal consultation will be published.
Further consultation is due to take place later this summer as part of the Local Plan process. This will be helped by the feedback that has been provided already and dates for the consultation will be confirmed soon.
It is anticipated that the indicative timeline for the project will be as shown in the adjacent table, with development beginning some time in 2021/22. We anticipate that it will take in the order of a decade for the site to be completely built out, depending on the market.
