An application has been submitted to demolish and rebuild an “outdated” block of flats in Loudwater.

Red Kite has revealed plans to knock down Queensmead House in Queensmead Road and build 30 new “affordable homes” in its place.

If the application is approved by Wycombe District Council, the new block will be made up of 24 one and two bedroom flats wrapped around a courtyard and six three bedroom houses designed with families in mind.

The houses will be provided with two off-street parking spaces each, while 24 spaces will be created for the flats.

The design and access statement said: “This proposed development will improve the area visually, and turn what was outdated homes, now an empty building, into much needed new homes, including large family homes all with amenity; thus making full use of the site’s potential.

“The design has been thoroughly explored and carefully considered. The scheme is sensitive to the site and surrounding context as well as providing an appropriate and welcoming scheme for the end users and existing residents alike.”

Residents previously living in the block have been rehomed in other Red Kite properties in the Wycombe district, and the building now lies empty.
