This is what a huge new retirement village with restaurant, bar and swimming pool on the site of a former Bible translation centre will look like.

Audley Wycliffe Park will be the name of the new £80 million development on the site of the former Wycliffe Centre in Horsleys Green, which was used as a conference centre and for Bible translation for 41 years until 2013.

The new retirement village, on Bigmore Lane between Stokenchurch and West Wycombe, is currently being built after the derelict conference centre was knocked down.

It will have 156 retirement homes on site and will be run by Audley Group in a joint venture partnership with the Royal London Pension Property Fund.

The Fund will be providing the capital for the development of Audley Wycliffe Park and will have freehold ownership when all the homes are sold, but Audley Group will enter a 250-year lease of the site.

Audley will be running the site and will manage the sale and marketing of all the homes.

The 25-acre village will also boast a library, restaurant and bar, swimming pool and luxury health club.

Audley Group already has one other retirement village in the area - Audley Chalfont Dene in Chalfont St Peter.

It will be their second village in Bucks, but their 21st overall.

Andrew Johnston, Head of Alternative Property Investment, Royal London Asset Management, said: “We’re delighted to have completed this JV arrangement with Audley Group and look forward to getting on site this quarter with our first project in the retirement living sector and working together to deliver an outstanding retirement village.

"Having worked closely with the team at Audley Group over the past few months, we’re positive with regard to a strong, future working relationship."

Plans to overhaul the Wycliffe Centre into a supported living community were first put forward by Salmon Harvester Properties in 2014 after they bought the site from the Wycliffe Foundation.

The original application for 169 units was given permission by the council, but the scheme was not financially viable so did not go ahead in the end.

Fresh plans were put forward in 2017 and were given the green light.

Salmon Harvester Properties sold the site to the Royal London Pension Property Fund in 2018.
