Bentley Priory plans approved

Bentley_priory_vsm_vis LB Harrow has approved Vinci St Modwen’s plans for the former RAF base at Bentley Priory.

Councillors last night agreed proposals to renovate the Grade II listed mansion building at RAF Bentley Priory, which was the headquarters of Fighter Command during the Second World War, and build new housing on the rest of the site.

The developer will turn some of its less historically significant 17th century rooms into housing and build several other blocks of flats on the site.

Councillor Marilyn Ashton (Cons, Stanmore), who is responsible for planning on Harrow Council, had to leave a committee meeting she usually chairs because she lives next to the site and openly supports the project.

She told the Harrow Times: “It’s very important that we’ve got a Grade II listed building there and it’s critical we protect it and protect our heritage.”
