PLANS for an adult day centre and a new base in High Wycombe for Buckinghamshire County Council have been approved.

Wycombe District Council’s Planning Committee gave the proposals for the three-storey complex in Bellfield Road the thumbs up this week.

The 3,726sqm building would be split in to two – with BCC moving its Wycombe operations from Easton Street to the top two floors.

The ground floor will play home to a day centre for up to 80 vulnerable adults, which will feature activity rooms, changing facilities, a diner and a secure garden.

It is part of a Buckinghamshire County Council scheme to replace the county’s 22 day centres with six refurbished or new-build super-centres.

The application was approved on Wednesday, subject to planning conditions.

The complex will be part of the new-look Hughenden Quarter, which already features Buckinghamshire New University student accommodation.

The old De La Rue site is currently being redeveloped, with construction due to begin on a new link road between Wycombe and Hughenden next month.

A planning application for ExtraCare Charitable Trust retirement homes is expected to be submitted to WDC in the coming weeks.

Sounds pretty good, glad they're finally going to fill that huge stretch of brownfield land that runs from Morrisons all the way to Hughenden Park. The old factories was demolished years ago!
Maybe one day, in idealist land, those new offices could one day house the council for a unitary borough of High Wycombe

Agree. BCC is spending too much money on itself.
By all means let us have development, but to create wealth generating jobs, not expanding and housing a huge local civil service.
