Plans to turn the former Gerrards Cross police station into 34 flats will be presented to the council’s planning committee next week.

Last year South Bucks District Council bought the police station in Oxford Road for £4.2 million with a view to turn it into 34 flats – 40 per cent of which will be classed as affordable

The fate of the plans will be decided at a meeting of SBDC’s planning committee on Wednesday, August 15.

In June the council’s cabinet agreed the anticipated cost of the development would be £7,831,569, and members were asked to approve the increase of the pre-construction budget from £800,000 to £950,000.

The site - which includes the police station and eight existing houses in a "dilapidated" state - lies within the Green Belt.

Plans split the 34 flats into four blocks of accommodation, including six one bed and 28 two bedroom apartments with car parking and landscaping.

The council has previously faced calls for the site to be turned into housing for the homeless.
