Plans to transform a neglected area of High Wycombe have emerged, which include a new Aldi store and a workshop built out of shipping containers for artists based in the area.

Wycombe District Council have today announced the transformation scheme for Baker Street with plans set to be showcased to the public from Monday (February 6).

Proposals include budget supermarket Aldi store, a car showroom, purpose built vehicle workshops and a "funky" home for local craftspeople built out of shipping containers.

Council staff will answer questions at a drop in event being held on Tuesday (February 7) from 11am to 7pm at Arts4Every1 in Desborough Road.

It is not yet clear what this announcement means for the previous plans to open another Aldi across town, near B&Q. 

WDC’s cabinet member for regeneration and economic development, Roger Wilson, said:“I’d encourage everyone who’s interested in the future of this part of the town to come along to the exhibition and talk to us or give us comments using our website.

“We’re keen to hear local views to help us fine tune the scheme ahead of going through the formal planning process.”

Plans – which are subject to planning permission - will be available to view and comment from Monday at and the consultation will close to the public for comments on February 13.
