Building work gets off the ground on former aircraft firm site

The first homes are taking shape at a development being built on a site previously home to a firm which manufactured aircraft parts in Sunbury-on-Thames.

Fairview New Homes is building 33 homes on the former Page Aerospace site, off Forge Lane.

The 0.8-hectare site was bought by the developer after Page Aerospace decided to relocate.

The company shut down its manufacturing operations in December 2014 and completely closed the site in early 2015.

The redundant building was demolished in October last year and work began on Fairview’s development, which will be named Apollo.

Jim Holliday, Sales and Marketing Director for Fairview, said: “The Page Aerospace site was vacant and redundant after the company closed down operations there, and our acquisition of the land has prevented it falling into longer-term disuse.

“Regenerating brownfield land is our specialism as a developer, and our plans for Apollo will take this former commercial site and turn it into a new neighbourhood which we believe will be a quality addition to Sunbury.

“We are now several months into the build process and we are set to release the first homes for sale in May, with our first residents scheduled to move into their homes in August.”

Fairview is building 24 houses for sale at Apollo, ranging in size from 2 to 4 bedrooms.

A further 5 homes will be made available for affordable rent, while 4 homes will be available for shared ownership.
