300-home development blueprint on show from this week
RESIDENTS have their first chance to have their say on early plans for a possible 300 new homes in South Bucks when they go on display from this week.
A six-week consultation over the future of Beaconsfield’s Wilton Park will begin on Friday, when the Supplementary Planning Document blueprint goes on show for public feedback.
The 102-acre MoD site was identified by South Bucks District Council for major development after the Defence School of Languages announced it was due to close this year.
A community centre, sports pitches, a public park and a care home could all be on the cards as part of SBDC’s vision, with the document drawn up in partnership with developer Inland Homes.
The project would incorporate 40 per cent affordable housing mix, up to 120 homes, as part of the council’s Core Policy obligations.
And the first section of a relief road for London End is also proposed, with access from the Pyebush roundabout.
The consultation will run from Friday, January 17 until 5pm Friday, February 28, with plans available to view via the council website or at selected locations across the district.
Following the consultation period, SBDC will take into account the public response before completing a finalised blueprint for developers to use when applying for formal planning permission.
To have your say on the plans, visit www.southbucks.gov.uk from Friday or any of the following locations:
