Over 400 new homes and three sports pitches could be built on a former Hazlemere reserve site if new plans by developers are given the green light. 

Terriers Farm in Kingshill Road has long been earmarked for housing, and joint plans by Redrow Homes and Persimmon Homes have finally been revealed this week. 

The 22.9 hectare site could have up to 418 homes on it, with 310 built by Persimmon Homes and 108 by Redrow Homes. 

Forty-eight per cent of the homes will be designated 'affordable' and they will be a mix of homes for first-time buyers like one-bed flats, through to large four-bed family homes.

According to plans, the majority of the homes would be two-storeys in height, with some three-storey buildings along the site's main street. 

The developers are also proposing a network of streets, footpaths and cycleways that will be linked to existing roads and paths, as well as new public open space with play areas and three sports pitches. 

They also say the "majority" of trees and hedges on the site will be kept. 

The plans have already attracted a handful of objections from residents. 

Bucks Free Press:

Claire Weaver, of Copes Shroves in Hazlemere, said that the new development has no community provisions for an "already overcrowded" community. 

She wrote: "It would need a school, doctors, pharmacy, shops, not to mention an A&E at Wycombe Hospital and more emergency services provision.

"Just building houses and flats is not an asset to the wider community and would put too much strain on roads, emergency services etc." 

Bucks Free Press:

Manor Close resident Debbie Workman agreed, writing: "This application is adding many more hundreds of houses but we still no hospital with an A&E in High Wycombe and still no new schools or new road infrastructure. 

"Schools are over full. Local GP surgeries such as Hazlemere are so over-subscribed it's nigh on impossible to get an appointment.

"The roads such as Kingshill Road and Terriers and Hazlemere A404 are constantly backed up. The infrastructure just cannot cope with 400 extra houses."

Cllr Tony Green has also already 'called in' the application, so it can be decided by a planning committee of councillors. 

The developers say the plans will provide "much-needed" housing, sports pitches and public open space in the area.

Every house that has parking on the plot will have an electric car-charging point and there will also be places to store bicycles. 

To access the site, a priority T-junction could be built along Kingshill Road, as well as a roundabout junction from Amersham Road to the south, opposite De Havilland Drive. 

Developers have also agreed to make improvements to the Totteridge Lane/Kingshill Road/A404 Amersham Road double mini roundabout. 

Terriers Farm was one of five reserve sites released for development in a controversial move by Wycombe District Council back in 2014. 

The Terriers Farm plans are the final set to come forward - with huge building projects already announced, and some already well underway, on the other sites. 

In the Wycombe Local Plan, Terriers Farm is allocated for between 500 and 540 homes.
